It’s a sad day in the Hallmark world. Orson Bean’s death comes as a shock and to make this even more tragic, Bean’s wife Alley Mills was also at the scene and witnessed the accident.
Bean was killed by a car Friday night and his death is being investigated as a traffic related fatality. According to the LA police department, a car coming westbound did not see Bean, clipped him and he went down.
A second vehicle was coming up and was distracted by people trying to slow the driver down. When the driver looked up, a second traffic collision occurred and that was fatal as well.
