Brief excerpts from Eric W. Dolan's 6-18-13 article entitled "Journalist Michael Hastings Dies in Car Crash":

"The journalist and author Michael Hastings died at the age of 33 on Tuesday morning [6-18-13]. According to his employer BuzzFeed, Hastings was killed in a car crash in Los Angeles [...].

"Hastings gained national attention in 2010 after exposing inflammatory comments made by Gen. Stanley McChrystal about President Barack Obama and the civilian leadership of the military [...].

"A person who witnessed the crash early Tuesday morning said he saw Hastings speeding down the road in his car when it suddenly jackknifed, slammed into a tree, and burst into flames."
