TRAGIC CAR CRASH TAKES LIFE OF ACTRESS

Pin on Classic automotive accident (GRAPHIC)

Blonde bombshell and celebrated actress Jayne Mansfield was killed instantly
on June 29, 1967, when the car in which she is riding struck the rear of a trailer truck on U.S. Route 90 east of
New Orleans, Louisiana.

Mansfield had been on her way to New Orleans from Biloxi, Mississippi, where
she had been performing a standing engagement at a local nightclub; she had
a television appearance scheduled the following day. Ronald B. Harrison, a
driver for the Gus Stevens Dinner Club, was driving Mansfield and her lawyer
and companion, Samuel S. Brody, along with three of Mansfield’s children with
her ex-husband Mickey Hargitay, in Stevens’ 1966 Buick Electra.

Ernie’s 1962 Chevrolet Corvair.

On January 13, 1962, Ernie Kovacs, a comedian who hosted his own
television shows during the 1950s and is said to have influenced such
TV hosts as Johnny Carson and David Letterman, died at the age of 42
after crashing his Chevrolet Corvair into a telephone pole in Los Angeles,
California, while driving in a rainstorm. Kovacs, who often appeared on
camera with his trademark cigar, was found by police with an unlit cigar,
leading to speculation that he had been reaching for the cigar and lost
control of his vehicle. The Corvair was later made infamous by Ralph
Nader’s groundbreaking 1965 book “Unsafe at Any Speed: The Designed-
In Dangers of the American Automobile,” about unsafe practices in the
auto industry.
