    #8 Princess Stéphanie was 16 at the time of the accident, and there WERE roumors that she might have driven the car (illegally, as she was a minor at that time), but these accusations were invalidated.

    I can’t understand how Albert Camus didn’t make the list.

    Great list. Eddie Cochran was a great guitar player, he worked as a studio musician at Victor and Capitol records before his solo career, playing the solos in such rockabilly classics as “You Oughta See Grandma Rock” by Skeets McDonald and “New Shoes” by Lee Denson. Cochran was possibly one of the two 50’s rockers who introduced the electric guitar as the main instrument in rock’n’roll. (The other one was Chuck Berry).

    While not a car wreck, an accident in a car caused the death of Isadora Duncan.
    By the way, good list, well written, I enjoyed reading it.

    #9 Jayne Mansfield had a relationship with Anton Szandor LaVey, the founder of the Church of Satan. It has been claimed that LaVey put a curse on Jayne Mansfield and she was killed because of that.
