Celebrities Who Died in Car Crashes

Wednesday, 21 July 2010

celebrities who died in car crashes Princess DianaCelebrities rarely die of old age in their own bed, surrounded by loving family and friends. They are more likely to be taken away in the prime of their life, lost to some terminal illness or meeting their tragic end in an accident or a car crash. From «the Queen of Hearts» Princess Diana and fashion designer Nicolas Trussardi to the rebel icon James Dean and photography guru Helmut Newton, car crashes can be blamed for many celebrity deaths.

August 31, 1997 will be remembered as the day of the tragic death of Princess Diana of Wales: 36-year-old Diana, her boyfriend billionaire playboy Dodi al-Fayed and their driver were killed in the car accident. While speeding to escape paparazzi, the car carrying Diana, al-Fayed, her bodyguard and a driver crashed in a Paris tunnel, killing all but the bodyguard. According to Dodi's father, billionaire Mohammed Al Fayed, the car crash was set up by the British intelligence service.

Lady Diana was not the only beautiful car crashed royal who was mourned by the people around the globe. Fifteen years prior to the Paris tragedy, in 1982, the Princess Grace of Monaco, the former successful Hollywood actress happily married to Prince Rainier of Monaco, lost control of her car while driving on a hilly Monaco road. It veered off the road and rolled down a cliff side, injuring the princess and her daughter Stephanie. Stephanie recovered, but Princess Grace died the next day. It was later determined that the princess probably suffered a minor stroke while driving, causing the accident.

Author Margaret Mitchell lived nearly all her life in Atlanta, the setting of a famous scene from her novel Gone With the Wind. On August 11 of 1949 she was crossing an Atlanta street on her way to the theater when she was hit by a speeding cab. She died of her injuries five days later.

James Dean is probably the best known actor with a brilliant life cut short at such a young age. He was a race-car aficionado who actually drove in a few auto races in 1955. He was killed in a 30 September 1955 highway wipeout in his new car, a Porsche Spyder. While travelling to a race in Salinas, California, Dean saw a Ford turning left up ahead. «He sees us, he'll stop», Dean's last words were spoken to his ride-along mechanic. The crumpled ball of tin foil that once was Dean's car was sent on a tour of high schools to warn kids about dangerous driving, then disappeared, never to resurface. In a spooky irony, 24 year old James Dean made a public safety announcement to promote safe driving shortly before his death.

Another early-morning accident killed actress Jayne Mansfield. The bleached-blonde celebrity was driving from Biloxi, Mississippi to New Orleans around 2:00 am on 29 June 1967, rushing to make a talk show appearance in New Orleans the next morning. Mansfield was in the front seat with her lawyer Sam Brody and a chauffeur when their car ran into the back of a truck that was spraying for mosquitoes. Mansfield, Brody and the chauffeur were killed; her three children, riding in the back seat, survived.

Falco, a classical music prodigy who turned to pop music and had hits with Rock Me Amadeus and Body Next to Body (featuring Brigitte Nilsen), died in a traffic accident in 1957 in Austria.  He was 40.  The Austrian-born singer and songwriter suffered a severe head injury when his sport utility vehicle collided with a bus as he was pulling onto a highway Friday evening near the resort of Puerto Plata. He died at a Puerta Plata hospital. Police detained the bus driver, but no charges have been filed. Police said Holzel was vacationing at the resort, one of the most popular tourism destinations in this Caribbean country, especially among Europeans. 

In 1999, another car accident made the headlines: the legendary Italian designer Nicolas Trussardi, who turned the Trussardi brand into one of the symbols of Italian fashion, lost control of his car. He crashed his car on the way home near Milan, went into a coma and did not recover. According to some experts, his life could be saved if he had used a safety belt, which he never did. Nicolas Trussardi was only 56.

In 2004, the fashion world lost another luminary: the legendary fashion photographer Helmut Newton who had been closely collaborating with Vogue for decades and was famous for his portraits of many Hollywood celebrities and supermodels, died in a car crash in California. While leaving a parking lot at the Chateau Marmont Hotel on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, he lost control of his Cadillac and crashed into a wall. An hour later, the famous photographer died in hospital.

In April 2007, Hollywood film director Robert Clark died in a car crash in California. Clark was known for his direction a number of box office hits, such as A Christmas Story, Murder by Decree, Rhinestone, Porky's, Black Christmas.
