Rolling Stone writer Michael Hastings killed in Los Angeles crash

Posted on June 22nd, 2013 No Comments

Journalist Michael Hastings, who wrote the well-known expose article in Rolling Stone magazine that led to U.S. commander in chief in Afghanistan, Stanley McChrystal’s resignation, was killed in a car crash in Los Angeles on June 18.

Editor-in-chief of BuzzFeed Ben Smith released a statement saying that the 33-year-old veteran journalist had been killed in the crash and that supporting details confirming his death were not yet available.

However, on June 17, a fatal car crash happened near Hollywood, causing a man to be severely burned inside his vehicle, Los Angeles police stated. Further investigation is needed by authorities to identify the burned driver.

Hastings, who had covered wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, also wrote for GQ and Newsweek magazines.
