1970: January 4th – Amidst the strangest of circumstances, Keith Moon of The Who accidently ran over and killed his chauffer, Neil Boland.
It seems that a gang of teens attacked Moon’s Bentley limo. When chauffer Boland got out to try and protect the car, he inadvertently left it in gear … and as it started moving forward, Moon (who didn’t have a driver’s license) jumped behind the wheel and accidently gunned the engine instead of hitting the brake. Unbeknownst to him, Boland had been beaten and had fallen under the car. He was run over and killed.
