Michael Hastings Killed in Car Crash

Michael HastingsMichael Hastings, a hard-hitting journalist, war reporter, and author, whose article brought down a four-star general, died in a car crash in Los Angeles. He was 33 years old.

There were limited details about the accident that killed Hastings in the early hours of Tuesday. The police have concluded that the main factor was speed but neither the Los Angeles officers nor the coroner’s office could confirm his death since the body has not been officially ID’d.

His latest employer, BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith, said, “Michael was a great, fearless journalist with an incredible instinct for the story, and a gift for finding ways to make his readers care about anything he covered, from wars to politicians.”
