Date: 13th October 2001
Troubled actress Rebecca Gayheart was involved in another car crash (beginning Oct), following a tragic incident during summer 2001, where she knocked down and killed a child.
This accident happened as she traveled through a residential area of Hollywood Hills. The Mazda hire car she was driving ploughed into two parked cars, flipping over on impact.
Rebecca was found half a block away by the emergency services, who claimed she was dazed, confused and relatively unharmed.
Following the accident involving the child, Rebecca faces a multi-million dollar civil lawsuit for wrongful death and a charge of Misdemeanor Manslaughter, pending a trial. If she is found guilty, the actress could face a year in prison.
