Comedian Robert Schimmel Dies from Injuries in Car Crash

Car accidents are no laughing matter, especially when they turn out to be fatal.

Renowned stand-up comedian Robert Schimmel lost his life last Friday after a fatal car crash accident in Phoenix.

Schimmel, who is not just known for his comedic talents in his raunchy HBO specials, is also recognized as a fighter against cancer. However, after a week-long battle with the injuries he sustained in the crash, he passed away at the age of 60.

Schimmel was travelling in Arizona with his 19-year old daughter and 11-year old son when the accident occurred. His daughter Aliyah was driving and when she swerved to avoid an oncoming car, their vehicle flipped over several times.

His daughter also suffered injuries in the crash but his son was reportedly uninjured. Aliyah is now in a stable condition.

Many celebrities mourned the passing of Schimmel and in an emotional post, his brother wrote on Facebook, “ROBERT SCHIMMEL. Son, Brother, Father, Grandfather, Comedian, Generous Man. I have always loved you, admired you, and was proud to be your biggest fan. I will never forget a single moment. R.I.P.”
