Evel Knievel dies at 69

We just got word that Evel Knievel died at the age of 69 from apparent liver failure. His personal website isn't loading up, nor is there any confirmation of Knievel's death on any of the major media sites. We'll keep you posted as we find out more.

: Yahoo! News has an obit on Knievel, whose death was confirmed by his granddaughter earlier today. The daredevil extraordinaire underwent a liver transplant in 1999 after a long battle with hepatitis C, rumored to be contracted during a blood transfusion after one of his spectacular crashes in his early years.

Our deepest sympathies to his friends, family and admirers.
