More than 3 thousand fatal traffic accidents are recorded every day in the world. No one is immune from such involvement, not even famous stars.
Fame, fame and regalia did not save celebrities from death. OBOZREVATEL recalls the celebrities, whose life was suddenly cut short after a car accident.
- Princess Diana
The death of 36-year-old Princess Diana has come as a shock to the world. The mother of the two heirs to the British throne was returning to a hotel in Paris, but the driver was driving at high speed and failed to cope with the control. The luxury hotel chauffeur was groggy and under the influence of antidepressants. The car was traveling in a tunnel and crashed into a wall.
In addition to Diana, her close friend and the driver himself died. Only the princess's guard survived, who had to undergo many operations and lost his memory. The public puts forward dozens of versions from a conspiracy to the need to speed away from the paparazzi. The death of the princess became a world scandal. At the time of her death, Diana had already ceased to be a member of the royal family after her divorce from King Charles, so Elizabeth II did not plan to organize a lavish farewell ceremony. This is what angered Lady Di's fans, who called her the "Queen of Hearts."
- Paul Walker
In the fall of 2013, the whole world heard the news about the death in a traffic accident of the star of the movie "Fast and Furious" Paul Walker, who was only 40. His death was considered symbolic, as he became famous for his fast driving in the movie. The tragedy occurred during the filming of the next part of the movie.
Paul Walker took a ride in a Porsche Carrera GT with his friend Roger Rodas during a charity car show. The driver was not the actor himself, but his friend. The driver lost control, the car hit a pole, then drove into a tree and caught fire. Both men died on the spot from injuries and burns.
- Grace Kelly
Princess of Monaco and actress Grace Kelly was involved in a car accident in 1982. While traveling on a serpentine road, she had a stroke. The star lost consciousness, but the car continued driving, went off the mountain and overturned. The woman was traveling with her daughter in the car, and she suffered a broken neck as a result of the accident.
Kelly had been on life support for almost half a year and doctors reported that medicine was powerless and she would never regain consciousness. The royal family decided to disconnect the machine. Grace Kelly was 52 years old.
