Comedian Robert Schimmel has died from his injuries following a car accident last month.
The funnyman, who was a regular on Howard Stern’s radio show, was a passenger in a car driven by his 19-year-old daughter Aliyah on 26 August when the teenager reportedly swerved to avoid another vehicle and crashed.

Schimmel was hospitalised at a medical facility in Phoenix, Arizona and passed away on Friday aged 60, his manager Lee Kernis has confirmed.

Schimmel’s daughter and one of his sons, who was also a passenger in the car, were also taken to hospital but are said to be in a stable condition.
