9. James Dean’s Car Accident and Death
Dean died in a car accident on September 30, 1955, when he was 24 years old. The details of the accident are public knowledge—his Porsche 550 Spyder was hit almost head-on by a 1950 Ford Tudo, driven by 23-year-old Donald Turnupseed.
Conspiracy theorists don’t believe Dean actually died in the car crash, however. They claim that the damage done was too light for a high-speed crash and contend that Dean faked his own death.
