Seasoned journalist Michael Hastings who wrote for BuzzFeed and contributed to other news sources was killed in a car accident in Los Angeles on June 18.

Details confirming the death of the 33-year-old, who wrote the controversial feature article that brought about the resignation of General Stanley McChrystal, were laregely unavailable after editor-in-chief of BuzzFeed Ben Smith announced his death. However, an incident report on June 17 coming from the Los Angeles police said a fiery crash killed a man near Hollywood. The car reportedly caught fire after it slammed into a palm tree. The driver was so badly burned that authorities had to first determine the identity of the man before confirming any details.

Hastings, who was a contributing editor for Rolling Stone Magazine, also worked for GQ and Newsweek magazines.

The legal team at Leehey Olson Law, P.C., expresses their sincere condolences to the family and friends of Hastings who suffered this loss.

1 dead, 1 injured in Rudd train accident

One person was killed and another injured after their truck was pushed by a train in Rudd last Saturday morning.

According to Iowa State Patrol, truck passenger Brian Leckness, 32, died on the spot and truck driver Gary Eilers, 73, was critically injured after their pickup truck did not yield at a railroad crossing and crossed a set of train tracks as the train was coming. As a result, the train pushed their truck nearly a quarter of mile, causing it to end up on 6th Street. The victims were first admitted to Mercy Medical Center in North Iowa, then
transferred to Mayo Clinic in Rochester.

Unfortunately, this tragic event that took place April 20 illustrates all too well how dangerous train crossings can be and the need for safe driving. Our condolences from the legal team at Leehey Olson Law, P.C., go out to all the family and loved ones of those involved in this accident.
