Classic Model A Ford Crashes into Tree on Marquez Avenue

No one was injured after a 1930 Model A Ford lost its brake and crashed into a tree in the 16800 block of Marquez Avenue Monday, according to neighbors.


Frank Damon, the homeowner, said the car crossed Ida Street at Marquez and drove onto his lawn just as school was letting out.

He said no one was hurt, including the driver.

“I have lived here for almost 40 years and have never experienced this one,” Damon said. “I was looking out my window and saw this yellow car rolling along across my front yard, thinking that something is very wrong.”

Damon said he instinctively jumped up from his chair fearing that he might be run over in his own home.
