LONDON -- New allegations are once again fueling conspiracy theories in the death of Princess Diana. Investigators are looking at possible new information related to the Aug. 31, 1997 car crash that killed the royal.

The latest theory, which has come to light courtesy of a nasty military divorce, suggests the crash that killed Diana may not have been an accident. Police at Scotland Yard are saying they're not reopening the case, but this is Diana and they're taking the allegation "seriously," CBS News' Mark Phillips reported on "CBS This Morning."

It may be the most investigated car cash in history, but police are looking at it again. The reason: a letter from a British soldier's family claiming that the British Army commando unit was involved in the death. The allegation comes in a letter to the police from the family of a woman involved in a divorce from a soldier, saying he made the claim to the scorned wife.

Scotland Yard issued a statement saying, "The Metropolitan Police Service is scoping information that has recently been received in relation to the deaths and assessing its relevance and credibility."

The deaths of Princess Diana and Dodi al Fayed were investigated in exhaustive inquiries at least three times by both British and French authorities. The verdict is they died because their driver was drunk as he tried to speed away from chasing photographers. And Diana and al Fayed weren't wearing seat belts.
