NEW YORK (AP) — The widow of “60 Minutes” correspondent Bob Simon has sued the driver of a town car that crashed and killed her husband.
The New York Post (http://bit.ly/1fc8GiQ ) says Francoise Anne-Marie Simon filed the lawsuit in Manhattan Supreme Court.
It names the driver, Reshad Abdul Fedahi, the limousine company, Skyline Credit Ride, and its contractor, Travez Transporation.
The suit says Bob Simon “suffered conscious pain” before dying of his injuries. The 73-year-old was killed Feb. 11 when the limo crashed on Manhattan’s West Side Highway.

Fedahi had two speeding convictions and nine license revocations.
The Post says Fedahi and Skyline didn’t return messages seeking comment. Travez declined to comment.
The suit seeks punitive damages.
