Simon dies at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital from injuries sustained in an accident involving his livery cab in New York City. 60 Minutes Executive Producer Jeff Fager:

It’s a terrible loss for all of us at CBS News. It is such a tragedy made worse because we lost him in a car accident, a man who has escaped more difficult situations than almost any journalist in modern times. Bob was a reporter’s reporter. He was driven by a natural curiosity that took him all over the world covering every kind of story imaginable. There is no one else like Bob Simon. All of us at CBS News and particularly at 60 Minutes will miss him very much.
