Aishwarya Rai is NOT Dead
It seems that there's a basic template floating around that spins the tale of a horrific car accident that ends in tragedy. Somebody out there is adding celebrity names to it every now and again and sends it to the news agencies. The latest name on that template was Bollywood superstar and one of the most gorgeous women in the world: Aishwarya Rai. Here's the bogus story:
Aishwarya Rai was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics responding to the accident.
Highway Safety Investigators have told reporters that Aishwarya Rai lost control while driving a friend's vehicle on Interstate 80 and rolled the vehicle several times killing her instantly. The vehicle was believed to have been traveling at approximately 95 miles per hour in a 55mph zone at the time of the accident. Witnesses have stated that Aishwarya Rai's car crossed the double lines several times prior to the accident and hit the center lane divider causing the vehicle to flip and roll.
Toxicology tests will be performed to determine whether she was driving under the influence.
The following statement was issued shortly after that false story broke:
"This story was dynamically generated using a generic 'template' and is not factual. Any reference to specific individuals has been 100 per cent fabricated by web site visitors who have created fake stories by entering a name into a blank 'non-specific' template for the purpose of entertainment."
Aishwarya is perfectly fine and currently filming a movie.
