Photograph article dated January 17, 1957 partially reads, "Leo Galitzine, 53, self-described Lithuanian prince, is at Van Nuys jail today booked on suspicion of manslaughter after a coroner's jury found him 'probably criminally responsible' for the traffic deaths of two Canoga Park residents. Galitzine was held despite inability of witnesses to identify him positively as the driver of a car which apparently caused a three-vehicle accident at Saticoy street and Vanalden avenue in Canoga Park last December 2."
