In the video it said 6 years, but it was only 6 months. He also was disqualified from driving for 15 years, but was reinstated after 9. And was fined 50 English pounds. Get this little bit of trivia: Guess what his name was? (It's Beatle related.)
Also in the video it said Eddie died 8 hours later, but it was actually 15. The car crash was at 11:50 pm and Eddie passed away at 4:10pm the next day.
Sharon Sheeley, the girl in the car, just had her 20th birthday 12 days earlier on the 4th! She wrote the song 'Poor Little Girl' for Ricky Nelson when she was just 18! The youngest women ever to write a #1 American song hit. She also wrote the song above 'Somethin' Else'. Sharon later married and her husband produced the TV hit music program 'Shindig'. Sharon died in 2002 at the age of 62.
