The next day, union miners killed 23 strikebreakers and mine guards. No one, on either side, ever faced jail time.

1997 - In the year of Bobbie M Simpson's passing, on August 31st, Princess Diana of Great Britain was killed when her car crashed into a pillar in the tunnel under the Pont de l'Alma bridge in Paris.
