Photograph caption dated September 16, 1981 reads, "Paramedics carry away a motorist hurt in a three-car accident today which injured 10 people, many of them waiting for a bus at the corner of Broadway and Santa Barbara Avenue. One of the cars bounced into a nearby bus bench, but Fire Department spokesman Ray Walker said most of the people waiting there managed to get out of the way before the car hit. However, one of those seated on the bench, whose identity was not immediately available, suffered a broken leg. A man trapped briefly in one of the vehicles sustained severe battery acid burns while another suffered a possible broken neck."
