THE OC star Rachel Bilson has been hiding a painful secret from fans - she once 'died' in a car crash. The actress almost lost her life at 14 after the car she was riding in with pals crashed into another vehicle on California's beach road the Pacific Coast Highway. She says, "I basically died and then came back. The window went into my head. It was really gross." The 24-year-old, who has a permanent reminder of the accident in the shape of a scar above her right eye, admits she still suffers from crippling migraines and memory loss - both of which she credits to her brush with death.
