Looking Back to 1941: A Car Accident in DeKalb

From the August 31, 2016, MidWeek "Looking Back."

1941, 75 Years Ago.

"Because both drivers were traveling at moderate rates of speed, damage was confined to bent fenders this morning when the cars of Lawrence Baie of Waterman and Pete Stavrakas came together.

"Mr. Baie was parked in front of the Dearth Brothers restaurant on Fourth Street and started backing into the parking lane as Mr. Stavrakas drove along, but was unable to swing out into the other traffic lane enough to prevent the cars hitting."

And, Still a Problem Today, Especially If You Have a Truck or SUV Parked to the Oncoming Traffic Side of You.  --RoadDog
