Photograph caption dated March 3, 1985 reads, "Los Angeles fire fighters walk past the wreckage of a single-engine plane and automobile after the plane lost power and slammed into a Granada Hills house. The blur effect is the result of a slow shutter speed." The crash, which killed the pilot, destroyed the house, but only injured the inhabitant, Kenneth Ashton, occurred on Ruffner Avenue.
