Several famous actors and musicians have been involved in horrible car crashes. Some of these celebrity car wrecks resulted in the deaths of multiple people, while other celebrities walked away from their car accidents without a scratch.

Who is the most famous person who has been in a terrible car accident? Everyone from Halle Berry to Dennis Rodman has had an incident while driving. In 2000, Berry was fined for leaving the scene of an accident that took place in West Hollywood at 2 am. She allegedly ran a red light and plowed into another vehicle, but the actress doesn't recall the incident due to a head injury. In 1982, Grace Kelly died after she missed a turn and her car flipped over a steep slope. Her daughter, Stephanie, was also in the accident, but recovered from her injuries.
