Molasses Truck V. Car: 9/18/51


 

9 18 51 Truck Car Accident Sepulveda at Burbank

From the USC Digital Archives comes this sharp photograph of the aftermath of an accident near Burbank and Sepulveda in Van Nuys. The date is 9/18/1951.

The San Diego Freeway had not been built and would not arrive here in Van Nuys for another ten years.

Cars back then had no air bags or seat belts.

But drivers also had no texting distractions.
