Photograph article dated September 25, 1948 partially reads, "Burbank Traffic Officer Clarence Havel, a Democrat, was off duty yesterday and his superiors blamed it directly on President Truman. Havel received leg injuries when a motorist ran over his foot as the officer directed traffic at 1st St. and Olive Ave., Burbank, during the President's 20-minute stop at the Southern Pacific train station. Ligaments were torn in Havel's foot, forcing him to take time off." Note: Pictured are Clarence Havel and his wife.
