21 Celebs Who Died In Car Crashes


2. James Dean

These days, James Dean is this mythical person whom people worship without seeing any of his movies or actually knowing anything about the guy. He has become a T-shirt, a meme, an icon. In our opinion, this is a shame. According to people who knew him, he was this incredible person who also had serious acting chops.

Besides turning in some stellar early performances in movies like East of Eden, Rebel Without a Cause and Giant, Dean became interested in racing and hoped to one day take part in Indy 500. Unfortunately for him and the rest of the world, those plans were never realized as he was killed in a car accident when he was only 24.

Imagine if Justin Bieber, only with talent and class, died at the age of 24. That’s what Dean’s death was like for the world.
