Former Star sports editor Tim Wheatley dies in car crash

Dateline: Mon 05 Oct 2009

A friend and copy editor has sent news of a tragedy involving a former Star editor:


"HEREFORD, Md. (AP) - Baltimore County police say Tim Wheatley, business editor of The Baltimore Sun, has been killed in a car accident and his 9-year-old daughter is seriously injured.

"Police spokesman Bill Toohey says Wheatley was making a left turn Monday morning about two miles from his home when a UPS truck struck the driver's side of his vehicle.

"The 48-year-old Wheatley died at the scene. His daughter, who was in the front passenger seat, was taken to a hospital.

"Toohey says a traffic light controls the intersection and it appears to be working. Police are investigating to determine whether either driver ran a red light.

"Wheatley started at The Sun in 2006 as sports editor. He moved to the business department earlier this year during a newsroom reorganization."

Deepest condolences to the family of Mr. Wheatley.

You should have your web dude check posts for those 3 kinds of links (<a, [url, [link) and filter them out when they all appear together in one post. Sure sign of a spammer at work.
