Famous People Who Died of Car Accident - Celebrities with Car Accident

Celebrity deaths—as shocking as they might be—are also undeniably fascinating, albeit in a morbid way. In 1997, the world was shaken by the news of the horrific car crash following which the much beloved Princess Diana died. Several years prior to this incident, Hollywood suffered a similar loss when the blonde sex bomb Jayne Mansfield was killed in a car crash at the age of 34, along with two others. The untimely and tragic deaths of James Dean, Paul Walker and Norman Burton in car crashes also shook the world. Accidental deaths become even more sensational when shrouded in mystery as in the case of Victor Davis, an Olympic gold medallist, who was struck by a car whose driver fled the scene. The death of basketball player Bryan Gahol who was killed along with companion Rosemarie Manalo in a multiple-vehicle collision was yet another car crash case which wiped out promising young lives.
