Namatay sa isang freak car accident ang 91-year old Hollywood actor, comedian, writer and producer na si Orson Bean noong nakaraang February 7.
Ayon sa report ng LAPD, naglalakad lang ang aktor along Venice Boulevard and Shell Avenue nang mahagip siya ng dalawang sasakyan.
“The car coming westbound did not see him and clipped him and he went down. A second vehicle was coming up, was distracted by people trying to slow him down and then looked up and then a second traffic collision occurred and that one was fatal.”
