Famous people who died too soon (DEATH PHOTO) - Princess Diana date of, cause of death: Diana killed by driver's gross negligence. Britain's Princess Diana died early Sunday after suffering massive internal injuries in a high-speed car crash, reportedly after being chased by photographers who were trying to snap photographs of the princess.

Her companion and rumored lover, Dodi Fayed, and their chauffeur also died when the Mercedes crashed shortly after midnight in a tunnel along the Seine River at the Pont de l'Alma bridge, less than a half mile north of the Eiffel Tower. A fourth person in the car, a bodyguard of the princess, was also seriously injured.

The 36-year-old princess died from internal bleeding stemming from major chest, lung and head injuries, doctors said at a 6 a.m. news conference.

It has been determined that the Diana died as a result of the gross negligence of driver Henri Paul and the paparazzi, a London jury has decided.

The inquest aimed to establish whether Diana and Dodi were the victims of an accident, or if they were the targets of an assassination plot headed by the British royal family - as claimed by tycoon, and Dodi's father, Mohamed Al Fayed.

But the six-month inquest came to a close on Monday (07Apr08) after three-and-a-half days of deliberations.

Nine of the 11 jurors were in agreement with the final verdict of unlawful killing, which blamed chauffeur Paul for driving with impaired judgement while under the influence of alcohol on the fateful night of 31 August, 1997. They also agreed the paparazzi played a part in their deaths by recklessly pursuing them in a high speed chase that led to the crash.

London's High Court heard how the crash in the Alma Tunnel was caused by the speed and the manner of which the Princess' Mercedes was being driven.

The jury ruled that both Diana and Fayed died because they were not wearing seatbelts when the black Mercedes hit a pillar in the tunnel.

Paul, who was not wearing a seatbelt either, also perished in the tragic crash. Go here for non-crash photos. Go here for crash photos.
