Stiv Bators (October 22, 1949 – June 4, 1990)

Punk singer, must notably from the bands The Dead Boys and Lords of the New Church.  Also an actor, best known role as Bobo in John Waters' "Polyester" (1980)

Struck by a car on the streets of Paris.  His injuries might not have been life threatening if he'd sought medical help.  However, Bators was too stoned on heroin to take care of himself.  He limped back to his apartment and died later of internal bleeding.

Pier Paolo Pasolini (5 March 1922 – 2 November 1975)

Italian film director, poet, and intellectual.  Infamous for the film "Salo: 120 Days in Sodom" (1975).  Shortly after the success of this final film he was murdered in Ostia, on the coast of Italy, near Rome. 
A rent boy (a teenage male prostitute) ran Palolini over with his own car.

Nicholas 'Razzle' Dingley, the drummer for Finnish glam band Hanoi Rocks.  He died in 1984 in a car crash; injuries he sustained as the passenger in a car driven by a very drunk Vince Neil.

For his crime, Vince Neil was sentenced to 30 days in jail, five years probation, $2.6 million in restitution to the victims of the crash and 200 hours of community service.  Due to Razzle's death, Hanoi Rocks called it quits.  Not only did Neil kill a human being, he killed one band's chance at future stardom

English singer and songwriter, the front man for the rock and roll band Johnny Kidd and the Pirates, Johnny Kidd died at age 30 in 1966, in a motor car accident on the A58, Bury New Road, Breightmet, near Radcliffe, Lancashire. The car in which he was travelling as a passenger had a head-on collision with one driven by Peter Metcalfe. Metcalfe's 17-year-old girlfriend, Helen Read, also died in the accident. Pirates' bassist Nick Simper, who later became an original member of Deep Purple, was also in the car with Kidd but he suffered only some cuts and a broken arm.

Derrick Thomas, linebacker for the Kansas City Chiefs.

http://37.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m42zwyb3ss1qgo9bao1_400.jpg

On January 23, 2000, Thomas' 1999 Chevrolet Suburban went off Interstate 435 as he and two passengers were driving to Kansas City International Airport during a snowstorm, where he was going to fly to St. Louis to watch the NFC Championship game. Police reports indicate that Thomas, who was driving, was speeding at approximately 100 m.p.h. even though snow and ice were accumulating on the roadway. Thomas continued weaving erratically through traffic until the time of the accident. Thomas and one of the passengers were not wearing seat belts and both were thrown from the car; the passenger was killed instantly. The second passenger, who was wearing his safety belt, walked away from the scene uninjured. Thomas was left paralyzed from the chest down. By early February, Thomas was being treated at Miami's Jackson Memorial Hospital. The morning of February 8, 2000, while being transferred from his hospital bed to a wheelchair on his way to therapy, Thomas told his mother he was not feeling well. His eyes then rolled back, recalled Frank Eismont, an orthopedic surgeon at Jackson Memorial Hospital. Eismont said Thomas went into cardio-respiratory arrest and died as a result of a pulmonary embolism; a massive blood clot that developed in his paralyzed lower extremities and traveled through his venous system to his lungs.

Actor Larry Breeding at the age of 36

He was best known for his roles on the ABC sitcom Who's Watching The Kids and CBS sitcom The Last Resort, both which got cancelled during their first seasons.  In 1982, he was set to co-star with Gerald McRaney in a new sitcom on ABC called It's Not Easy

McRaney had signed on, as his then show Simon and Simon was going to be cancelled, but when things changed and it got renewed at the last minute, he dropped out and went back to production for Simon and Simon, so producers had to look for a replacement.  While in wait, Breeding did guest spots on other TV shows, and on the day after filming a guest spot on an episode of "Laverne and Shirley" in 1982, the car he was driving veered into a pole on the Hollywood freeway and he was killed instantly.  The episode aired in 1983, after his death. 
The show It's Not Easy eventually went on in 1983, with Ken Howard and Bert Convy, and it got cancelled after only 4 episodes aired.

Travelling to his next gig at the Double Diamond Club in Caerphilly, Wales, the British singer Dickie Valentine was killed outright in a car crash on a single lane bridge at Glangrwyney, near Crickhowell, Wales on 6 May 1971, at the age of 41, together with pianist Sidney Boatman and drummer Dave Pearson, aged 42.

The coroner's inquest revealed the car in which the three were travelling to have been driven in excess of 90 mph at time of impact, and that Valentine, who was driving his wife Wendy's Hillman Avenger, with which he was unfamiliar (he was awaiting delivery of his new customised car), had lost control of the vehicle while attempting to take a (clearly marked) dangerous bend. Valentine had travelled on that stretch of road many times and was familiar with its hazards. It was thought Valentine's attention might have been distracted by conversation with his friends, in addition to fatigue (the crash having happened at 4:20am). There was also heavy fog in the area. The coroner returned a verdict of 'death by misadventure'. Valentine is interred at Slough Crematorium.

R&B singer Billy Stewart died in a car accident the following January in 1970, just two months prior to his 33rd birthday. The accident happened when the Ford Thunderbird that Stewart was driving approached a bridge across the Neuse River. Stewart's car left the highway, ran along the median strip at a slight angle to the highway, struck the bridge curbing, and plunged into the river, killing Stewart and his three passengers instantly. The car had been purchased only 12 days before and had been driven only 1,400 miles before the accident occurred.

Country star Dottie West died in car crash on September 4, 1991 in Nashville. Apparently, she was in a hurry to get to a concert at Opryland. Her own car, donated by Kenney Rogers, stalled and she accepted a ride from a neighbor, and she told hi,m to speed up. Initially OK at the scene of the accident, Dottie suffered massive internal injuries to her liver and spleen. Three surgeries failed to save her. The neighbor was sentenced to 9 months and 29 days probation after pleading no contest for reckless endangerment.
