    Yes, I spotted this story on the BBC, where both he and his wife were killed in a car accident.

    A beautiful mind, a difficult man, an amazing life story, and a man who came up with some incredible ideas and mathematical models which utterly transformed our understanding of our world. RIP.

    Very sad. The moral, always worth saying is, always put your seatbelt on, even when sitting in the back seat.

    Agreed. It doesn't matter where you are sitting, you should always wear your seatbelt.
