The story of “Dead Man’s Curve”, made famous in the Jan & Dean song, ironically came true near this site on April 12, 1966, when singer Jan Berry had a near-fatal car accident here. Jan was on his way to a business meeting when he crashed his Corvette into a truck parked on Whittier Drive. He was in a coma for almost two months and it left him permanently disabled.
