Author David Halberstam has died
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - David Halberstam, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author who chronicled the Washington press corps, the Vietnam War generation and baseball, was killed in a car crash early Monday, a coroner said. He was 73.
Halberstam, a New Yorker, was a passenger in a car that was broadsided by another vehicle near in Menlo Park, San Mateo County Coroner Robert Foucrault said.
"Looking at the accident and examining him at the scene indicated it's most likely internal injuries," Foucrault said.
Three others were injured.
