As TMZ first reported, Schimmel was the passenger in a serious car accident after his daughter, who was driving at the time, swerved to avoid an accident. She's still in the hospital, but we're told she'll be ok.

Schimmel is perhaps best known for his work on "The Howard Stern Show."

I feel bad for both Bob and his daughter. He loved that kid and she knows it. Its not her fault he died, accidents happen all the time. And the only reason I ever heard about him and his daughter was the Stern show. Of course when it was on free radio, I never bothered with Sirius. Not in my car long enough to waste money on that.

wow, RIP.

I hope his daughter can move past this and knows, it's just a freak accident. It happens and as tragic as it is, she has to know, he had health issues that I'm sure complicated his recovery. She can't go through life blaming herself. Not when she's only 19. How sad. My thoughts and prayers will be with the entire family and though he had a messed up life, I can only hope he's at peace now.

Loved his work on Friends. Never forget the funny scenes he had at the beginning of the show with his pet monkey. Never cared too much for his movies. He will always be remembered as a friend. One of his biggest fans here......RIP
