It can be easy to look at celebrities' lives from afar and think that their problems aren't real. We can sit, from the comfort of our own homes, and watch them on television, quietly observing their lives unfold in front of our eyes. However, these celebrities are people, too. They have families, they get diseases, and they suffer, sometimes as the result of a devastating car accident.
No one is immune to car accidents, including celebrities. In 2015, there were a number of accidents involving celebrities. Let's take a look at some of the famous accidents that happened throughout 2015.
Kim Kardashian Car Crash February 2015
In February, Kim Kardashian was involved in a harmless, yet frightening car accident. She was in the car with her sister, Khloe Kardashian, half-sister, Kylie Jenner, and daughter, North West, when their car was hit by some snow, briefly blocking Khloe's view of the road. The snow came off of a semi-truck that had driven by, and due to the snowy conditions, Khloe lost control of the car. Their vehicle spun out, however, the women were all safe and thankfully there was no damage as a result. This accident served as a good reminder to be safe on the roads, especially when there are poor weather conditions.
Nathaniel Marston Fatal Reno Crash
The actor, who starred in One Life to Live, passed away after being injured in a car accident. The 40-year-old actor was in a collision in Reno, Nevada, which caused him to suffer from a broken neck and back. At the time of the accident, Marston was not wearing a seatbelt, which caused him to be ejected from his vehicle. Before his death, his body was not responding well to treatments, and if he had made it through the injuries, he most likely would've been a quadriplegic for the rest of his life.
Nick Lachey, Vanessa Lachey Uber Car Accident
The couple was riding in an Uber, when they were involved in an accident. Thankfully, both the husband and wife were wearing seatbelts, and no damage was done to any passengers. Although this accident did not cause any major damage, it was enough to shake up the couple. They mentioned that it was a reminder to always buckle up, even when in an Uber.

Jill Zarin Hospitalized after 3 Car Pile up
The Real Housewives of New York star was hospitalized earlier in 2015, after being injured in a three-car pileup in New York City. She was a passenger in one of the vehicles, and has since fully recovered from her injuries.
Caitlyn Jenner Controversial Pacific Coast Highway Crash
This was one of the most talked about car accidents of 2015. Caitlyn Jenner was involved in an accident that left one woman dead on the Pacific Coast Highway in California. While there has been much speculation about the specifics of the fatal crash, it has been reported that Jenner's vehicle rear-ended the car of another driver, whose car then veered into oncoming traffic, killing her almost instantly.
