We’ve lost many celebrities unexpectedly over the years. These are ten famous people who died in car crashes, some at the hands of others, and some while they were doing what they truly loved most. Read through this list and let us know if you can think of any other tragic celebrity car accidents.
1. Paul Walker
The blue-eyed Fast and Furious actor tragically died at age 40 in a deadly car crash. In November 2013, when Walker was leaving his own charity event, Reach Out Worldwide for victims of Typhoon Haiyan, he took a ride with professional race car driver Roger Rodas. Rodas’s red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT crashed into a concrete lamppost and burst into flames. Both men died at the scene.
2. Princess Diana
The infamous car crash in the Pont de l’Alma road tunnel in Paris that killed Princess Diana of Wales took place in August 1997. She was fatally injured when her driver, who was accused of being drunk, lost control of the car due to the aggressive pursuit of the paparazzi. Speculation arose around her death stating that it was a murder planned by the MI6 as well as the Duke of Edinburgh. However in 2008, it was ruled an “unlawful killing” and gross negligence by Princess Diana’s driver by a London jury.
