(AP)…After spending weeks in a coma thought to be brought on by a prescription drug overdose, “Taxi” star Jeff Conaway has died. He was 60 years old.
Conaway, who is perhaps best known for his role as Kenickie in the 1978 iconic film “Grease,” fell into a coma after the reported overdose and was taken to a hospital on May 11. He never woke up.
On Thursday, Radar Online reported that the family of the star, who had a long and public battle with drug addiction, was looking to take him off of life support. Doctors
had previously told the family that no brain activity was detected from the star.
