Thuy Trang Car Accident: The Shocking Truth Behind Trang’s Fatal Incident!

After Mighty Morphin Power Rangers debuted in 1993, Thuy Trang became adored by millions of people, but the actress’ life ended tragically when she was ki!!ed in a car accident in 2001. She was 27 years old.

Trang was reportedly traveling with her friend Angela Rockwood, for whom she was to be a bridesmaid, between San Francisco and Los Angeles when their car, which another bridesmaid was driving, veered off the road and struck the wayside rock wall.

The cast members of the original Yellow Ranger now share memories of working with their friend as part of a comprehensive oral history in a recent issue of Entertainment Weekly commemorating the 25th anniversary of the first season of the popular Fox Kids series.

“The command center used to be freezing cold,” original Red Ranger Austin St. John, 44, remembers of filming with Trang on one of the show’s main sets. “Wearing nothing but spandex, we were all cold. We used to hold each other just to stay warm and chat in between shooting scenes. It was like a brother-and-sister sort of thing.”

Here are some further updates that are similar to this one:

“We were really good friends. I was so proud of the work she was doing in films like The Crow! It hurt my heart to lose her. She was way too young and had so much more to share with the world,” adds original Black Ranger Walter Emanuel Jones, 48.

“I remember how sweet Thuy was to people. She especially had a way with kids. Her energy drew you in, and her smile made your heart feel safe.”

After the pilot was filmed, Trang replaced original actress Audri Dubois in the Power Rangers cast. She and Jason David Frank, who would play the Green Ranger, were partnered together at her audition at random.

“I remember Thuy was always getting hurt on set,” recalls Frank, 45. “She put her all into the scenes, so sometimes things happen. I especially remember her having to be carried around a lot due to getting hurt. She was always so positive and gave her all. I’ll always remember that about her.”

After his time on the Power Rangers, St. John worked as a paramedic in Washington, D.C., and for several years with the American military as a healthcare provider in the Middle East. He says he wishes he could have been at Trang’s funeral, but others say they found ways to keep her in their lives even after she passed away.

“[Original Pink Ranger Amy Jo Johnson] was the person who called to tell me,” recalls original Blue Ranger David Yost, 49.

“I was so shocked. I remember calling Thuy’s voicemail a few times after I found out just to hear her voice and leave her a message saying I’ll miss her. Learning about her early childhood and everything she and her family went through leaving Vietnam, becoming refugees, and immigrating to the United States, I admired her and her family’s strength to rebuild their lives here. I’ll always remember her great laugh and infectious smile.”

“I’ll always remember her spunky, strong personality,” says Johnson, 48, who gave a speech at a memorial service for Trang in 2001. “She was such a bright light. It’s hard to believe she’s gone.”
