A Car Accident in the Backyard, 1960

In 1960, the Stufflebean family lived in Compton, California. Dave’s older, teenage brother was home by himself late one afternoon. All of a sudden, he heard an extremely loud crash and ran outside to see what had happened. Here is what he saw:




Apparently, a neighbor who lived down the street was on his way home. He was more than a little inebriated – yes, in the middle of the afternoon – and he took a wrong turn into the Stufflebean driveway. However, instead of stopping and backing up, he continue driving on, right through the fencing in the back yard!

Dave’s dad wasn’t too upset, though, as the house wasn’t damaged and the insurance company provided him with a nice new block wall fence around the yard.
