David Halberstam, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author and journalist who chronicled the Washington press corps, the Vietnam War generation and baseball, was killed in a car crash early Monday, a coroner said. He was 73. Halberstam, a New Yorker, was a passenger in a car that was hit broadside by another vehicle around 10:30 a.m. near a bridge in Menlo Park, south of San Francisco, said San Mateo County Coroner Robert Foucrault. "Looking at the accident and examining him at the scene indicated it's most likely internal injuries," Foucrault said. The driver, a student at the University of California, Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism, was taken to Stanford Medical Center. Two others were injured in the crash.
