The New York Post reports that a former New York reporter who was critically wounded in a car accident in 2014 has died.
The Post reported Thursday that Thomas F. Gennaro, 53, died of his injuries on Wednesday.
The death was ruled a homicide, according to the Post.
The New Yorker reported in October that Gennero had been working for the newspaper for more than a decade.
Gellaro, who was the Times’ chief correspondent, was struck by a car on Aug. 31, 2014, as he was driving in Manhattan’s Times Square.
The newspaper said at the time that the crash was caused by an “unexpected and untimely accident.”
He was treated and released from a hospital, but the accident remains a source of anxiety for the Times.
Gillararo worked as a reporter at the Times for 18 years.
He was also the Times deputy managing editor.
The paper reported Gennarios death Wednesday morning.
The Times confirmed Genno died at his home in the Bronx.
He had been a reporter for more that a decade and had a number of other assignments, including national security, according the paper.
The Associated Press reported that he was the first Times employee to die in the line of duty.
