Matthew Broderick Car Accident: Jennifer Grey recalls horrific Fermanagh car accident with Matthew Broderick.
On August 5, 1987, while driving a rented BMW 316 in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland, Broderick crossed into the wrong lane and collided head-on with a Volvo. Two people were killed in the crash, with Grey and Broderick surviving with minor injuries.
The deceased victims were identified as female driver, 28-year-old Anna Gallagher and her mother, 63-yea-old Margaret Doherty.
Broderick was vacationing with Jennifer Grey, whom he had begun dating in semi-secrecy during the filming of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off; the crash publicly revealed their relationship.
He suffered a fractured leg and ribs, a concussion, and a collapsed lung. Grey’s injuries included severe whiplash, which later required surgery to avoid paralysis.
