Olympic champion and Kardashian patriarch Bruce Jenner was involved in a fatal car accident on the Malibu stretch of PCH in February 2015. According to eyewitnesses, Jenner's SUV rear ended a white car and sent it careening into oncoming traffic. It was then struck by a Hummer. The driver of the white car was killed, and seven others sustained injuries. Bruce was not hurt in the wreck.
Police say that Jenner voluntarily submitted to have his blood drawn for a blood alcohol test and that he was not speeding at the time. After passing a field sobriety test, he initially claimed that he was being chased by the paparazzi, but police do not believe that to be true.
Jenner later released a statement saying, "My heartfelt and deepest sympathies go out to the family and loved ones, and to all of those who were involved or injured in this terrible accident. It is a devastating tragedy, and I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. I am praying for them. I will continue to cooperate in every way possible."

Boxing promoter Don King killed two men in separate incidents. King killed the first man in self-defense when the man was trying to break into his gambling operation. King was convicted of second-degree murder for the second incident, in which he stomped to death an employee who owed him $600.
A RANKER USER SAID: "That's right. Don King beat a man to death and the author who wrote this forgot to mention he only served just under four years, and the called it "manslaughter." How is stomping a mans head until it cracks open and he dies, NOT 1st or 2nd degree murder?
Don King stole MILLIONS from ignorant boxers like Mike Tyson. He's a thug and I hope he chokes to death soon...." (join the discussion)
In 1987, Matthew Broderick and his then-girlfriend and Ferris Bueller's Day Off co-star, Jennifer Grey, were on vacation in Ireland. Broderick mistakenly drove the wrong way on a street and crashed into on oncoming vehicle. The driver and passenger in the other car both died from their injuries.
A RANKER USER SAID: "This was the first i had ever heard of this accident with Matthew Broderick and Jennifer Gray which killed a mother and daughter. It seems to have really had a huge effect on Jennifer Gray from what she said here:
“The juxtaposition of that deep sorrow, the survivor’s guilt, and then being celebrated as the new big thing just didn’t jibe. It didn’t feel good to be the toast of the town.”
And she admits she never recovered from the trauma, effectively turning her back on showbiz at the age of 27: “My head was never the same, my ambition was ever the same.”also ranked#16 OF 79 The Greatest 80s Teen Stars#24 OF 70 The Best Animated Voiceover Performances#90 OF 101 The Best American Actors Working Today#240 OF 394 The Best Actors in Film History
On January 4, 1970, The Who drummer Keith Moon accidentally killed his friend and bodyguard, Neil Boland, by hitting him with his car. Moon was trying to drive away from pub patrons who were harassing him, and he did not see his friend in the road. Moon was charged with Boland's death, for driving without a license or insurance, and for driving under the influence. Though the death was ruled an accident, Moon pleaded guilty to the driving charges. He was haunted by the incident until the time of his own death in 1978..
A RANKER USER SAID: "In a way, even though it was ruled an "accident" - I really think Keith Moon should have served time for driving under the influence. A life was loss and no sentence was carried out. This is such an injustice world we live in." (join the discussion)
