  • Description

    May 8, at Suresnes, near Paris, France, the car crash that resulted in Aly Khan's death, May 12, was re-constructed by two police experts with surveyor's tapes and chalk lines, while witnesses returned to positions they had occupied the night of the fatal tragedy.

    Charles Bichaton, driver of the Simca Aronde which struck Aly Khan's Lancia, hobbled around on sticks, but Bettina, the dead man's friend who was by his side in the collision, was excused attendance; Paris police accepted a lawyer's plea that her presence would contribute no useful evidence to the enquiry.

    M. Bichaton is reported to have welcomed the enquiry, in order to be given opportunity to clear himself of charges of negligent driving; at the time of the accident it was said his car had been on the wrong side of the road when it collided head-on with the Lancia; Aly Khan, his chest crushed, died in hospital soon afterwards.
