Parker Helps Broderick Over Tragedy

MATTHEW BRODERICK is finally free of the nightmares that have plagued him since he killed two people in a car accident in 1987.

According to pals, the love the GODZILLA star feels for wife SARAH JESSICA PARKER has helped him heal from the horrific accident.

Over ten years ago, the heart-throb was vacationing with his then girlfriend DIRTY DANCING star JENNIFER GREY, when his BMW veered into oncoming traffic, killing ANNA GALLAGHER, 28, and her mother MARGARET DOHERTY, 63.

He says, "Sarah has helped me understand that there is nothing I can do now but pray for those people and their families and try to live a good and honourable life. "I know that God knows how sorry I am and if I could do anything to bring those people back I would."

A pal says, "
Matthew will never forget what he did. But after years of therapy and Sarah's gentle understanding he realizes it was an accident and it serves no purpose to keep torturing himself."
