Halberstam dies in car crash
by UPI

MENLO PARK, Calif. - David Halberstam, who won a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting on the Vietnam War, was killed Monday in a three-car crash in California.

The 73-year-old New York resident was a passenger in one of the cars, the Palo Alto Weekly reported on its Web site.

The crash, which occurred about 10:30 a.m., was being investigated by the Menlo Park (Calif.) police, the newspaper said. The drivers of two of the vehicles were hospitalized but the extent of their injuries were not known.

The noted journalist and author had been in California for a weekend lecture titled "Turning Journalism Into History" at the University of California-Berkeley, CNN said.

Halberstam won his Pulitzer in 1964 while working for The New York Times. He went on to author "The Best and the Brightest," which examined why the United States got ensnarled in Vietnam. He also wrote "The Powers That Be," "The Fifties" and "The Summer of '49."
