Obit Bob SimonCBS newsman Bob Simon’s black-car driver was a rookie with nine license suspensions who is suspected of speeding during the fatal crash — and had just one hand on the wheel because he had a “dead” left arm from a suicide attempt, sources said Thursday.

Investigators believe Abdul Reshad Fedahi, a 44-year-old Afghan immigrant who lives in a homeless shelter, mistakenly hit the gas instead of the brake after sideswiping a car on the West Side Highway at about 6:45 p.m. Wednesday, law-enforcement sources said.

“He hit the gas pedal instead of the brake. He sped up after hitting the car,” a law-enforcement source told The Post.

Simons, a “60 Minutes’’ correspondent and legendary war reporter, was sitting in the rear seat without his seat belt, sources said. He suffered a broken neck and severe stomach and head trauma.  More

george-dawNutty News West Babylon, New York – A Long Island school bus driver was called into his boss’ office expecting commendation. Instead, he said he was fired for helping three police officers stranded in a violent storm – and transporting them in his school bus. Daw snapped pictures as a near-monsoon moved through New Hyde Park. Traffic was stopped, cars were submerged and drivers panicked. George Daw finally freed his yellow SUV school bus – with his one single child passenger aboard – amid sudden cries for help from three Nassau County police detectives. “Do I leave these three police officers, due to company policy?” Daw said. “I didn’t even second guess it. I told the child to jump in the back, these people are coming on board. I had to get them.” Daw rescued and transported the police officers – their unmarked patrol car was a total loss.  More

He drove backwards into the carports for the condominiums next door where he knocked down a large support beam for the roof and punched his Jeep through a wall, coming to rest in a bathroom. Flavia told officers he’d splashed himself with the contents of a bucket outside a portable toilet because he thought the dogs were coming, and he was trying to throw off the scent.  More
