Mathew Broderick Killed Two People

In 1987, when Matthew Broderick was riding high on the success of Ferris Bueller's Day Off and vacationing in Northern Ireland with Jennifer Grey, the star was speeding through the countryside when he veered into the wrong lane and collided with another car. He received multiple injuries, Jennifer Grey had whiplash, and the driver and passenger of the other car, Margaret Doherty and Anna Gallagher, were killed instantly. Initially Broderick was charged with causing death by dangerous driving and faced up to five years in prison, but he later received the lesser charge of careless driving and was fined only $175.From Jacob Shelton on FACT METER: 9 or 10
