Celebrities are human too. They make mistakes and even find themselves in trouble with the law. You may not realize that some of your favourite musicians and actors have caused some pretty serious accidents. Here are seven times celebrities have caused car accidents.
Lindsay Lohan has really caused quite a lot of car accidents. This young actress was on top of the world until she found herself caught up in a world of alcohol and drugs. He was arrested many times (with some pretty mug shots). In one incident, he crashed into a rented Porsche and was arrested for a hit-and-run.
Caitlyn Jenner must have been in a rush when she hit people in front of her in her Cadillac Escalade on a highway in California. The car he hit hit another vehicle. Unfortunately, a 69-year-old woman was injured in the accident. Jenner was never prosecuted for the accident because it was an accident.
However, because it was his fault, he had to pay heavy damages in civil court. He was just lucky he was part of a family that had close ties to a lawyer who could build a robust case for him.
Ryan Dunn is a tragic reminder of the big toll that can come after making the decision to drink and drive. Ryan is most famous for his relationship with MTV’s Jackass crew.
While many of the cast have been able to keep their demons under control, Ryan’s time with us was sadly cut short when he was in a car accident in California after a night of partying. His blood alcohol level was double the legal limit. While he made a terrible mistake that cost him his life, we still can remember the joy he brings to others and the lessons his story can teach us.
Broderick and fiancé Jennifer Gray were on vacation in Ireland when the unthinkable happened. Broderick, driving a rented BMW, crashes into another car. Two women died as a result of the accident.
Broderick and Gray are luckily alive, but they will carry their scars for the rest of their lives. Broderick was not punished too severely. In fact, he was only charged with reckless driving.
You possibly thought you could do anything once you were part of the 90s Chicago Bulls. Dennis Rodman was driving on the wrong side of the road when his erratic driving caused another driver to have an accident.
Even worse, Rodman left the crash site. In the end, he was charged with lying to the police and hit and run. He was put on probation for three years.
Hulk Hogan’s son Nick finds himself in deep trouble after he decides to drag race a Toyota Supra with his friends. When he loses control of the vehicle, he ends up causing a really serious accident that cripples a friend for life. He was sentenced to eight months in jail, but that was nothing compared to the guilt he carried with him.
Halle Berry is another person who ends up in a hit and run. When he blew a red light, he ended up colliding with another driver. Police found him with a head wound in his home. He was charged with hit and run. He also received three years probation.
