Dr. Michael Brown had this to say:

Some shocking and tragic news: David Wilkerson was killed today in a car accident in Tyler, Texas, and his wife Gwen was seriously injured. How he will be missed! Let’s pray for God’s grace to be poured out on the family and for his words to be listened to all the more carefully and soberly. And let all of us live in the light of eternity.

Here are the last words on David’s devotional blog for today, the day he died. Very appropriate:

Beloved, God has never failed to act but in goodness and love. When all means fail—his love prevails. Hold fast to your faith. Stand fast in his Word. There is no other hope in this world.
