Bob Simon, the award-winning 60 Minutes correspondent, died on Wednesday night in a car crash on Manhattan's West Side Highway. He was 73. The Daily News reports that Simon was riding in a livery cab when the car rear-ended a Mercedes-Benz and hit the median at about 6:45 p.m. Simon and the cabbie were cut from the vehicle and taken to St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital, where Simon was pronounced dead.
