A seasoned journalist, who was most famous for a piece published in Rolling Stone magazine, was killed in a car crash in Los Angeles on June 18.

Journalist Michael Hastings, whose feature article exposed U.S. general McChrystal and led to his resignation, was killed in a car wreck, according to BuzzFeed Editor-in-chief Ben Smith. Details confirming Hastings’ death were not available immediately after the announcement; however, police said a fiery fatal accident occurred a day before the announcement of Hastings’ death and involved a man who was burned to death after his vehicle struck a tree near Hollywood. Further investigation was needed to identify the burned driver.

Hastings used to cover wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The legal team at the Chris Mayo Law Firm sends their sincere condolences to the family and friends who were affected by Hastings’ death.
