    CBS News correspondent Bob Simon, 1941-2015

    NEW YORK -- Bob Simon, the longtime "60 Minutes" correspondent and legendary CBS News foreign reporter died suddenly tonight in a car accident in New York City.

    The award-winning newsman was 73.

    Simon's five-decade career took him through most major overseas conflicts spanning from the late 1960s to the present. He joined CBS News in 1967 as a New York-based reporter and assignment editor, covering campus unrest and inner city riots. Simon also worked in CBS News' Tel Aviv bureau from 1977-81, and worked in Washington D.C. as the network's State Department correspondent.

    Bob Simon, 73, was not wearing a seat belt when he was killed in a car crash on Wednesday on Manhattan's West Side Highway

    After the catastrophic damage to the cab, investigators planned to interview the driver as they believe speed may have been a factor in crash
