Carmel Car Crash, Jan. 1964

A spectacular fire followed a collision of two autos at the intersection of 6th and Junipero avenues in Carmel on January 23, 1964.  Cars were driven by Joseph Michalski of Salinas and Mary Jeanne Trosky of Carmel.  The crash ruptured the gas tank of the Trosky car.  The fire came when a warning flare was lighted to alert traffic.  Firemen extinguished the blaze with only moderate damage to each car.  Mrs. Trosky was able to leap to safety from the car carrying her 18-month-old son Jamie.  (Monterey County Herald archives)
