Bodyguard Regains Consciousness

The badly injured sole survivor of the high-speed crash that killed Diana, Princess of Wales, on Aug. 31 has recovered consciousness and should be able to tell investigators what he remembers of the accident, a doctor treating him said Tuesday.

The survivor, Trevor Rees-Jones, 29, a former British paratrooper, worked as a bodyguard for the family of the man Diana was with in the car that night, Dodi Fayed. He was in the right front seat wearing a seat belt when the car hit a support pillar in an underpass at an estimated 90 mph, killing everybody in the vehicle but him.
