This is the reason why we adopted the Underride Guard in USA.

I would assume thatís not actually the car she died in, is it? Just a "look-a-like".

Here are photos of the real Electra 225 (I blacked-out the bodies). Very sad.

...and her children...including future "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" star Mariska Hargitay...survived in the back seat.

Photos like those show how precious life is. It can end so fast, and so easily. One should hug his/her loved-ones often and tell them how much they are loved and cherished. You never know when you might not see them again.

In the original police report, on the evening of the 28th June 1967, Mansfield was at the Gus Stevens Seafood Restaurant & Buccaneer Lounge on US Highway 90 at Biloxi, Mississippi where she was attending an engagement.

Just after midnight on the 29th June, Mansfield, three of her children; Mariska, ZoltŠn and Miklůs, Mansfield's companion and attorney; Sam Brody and Mansfield's driver; Ronnie Harrison got into the Buick and left Biloxi for New Orleans where Mansfield due to speak on the WDSU's Midday Show, the following day.

At around 2:25 AM, their vehicle were travelling on US Highway 90; west of the Fort Pike Bridge (or the Rigolets Bridge) at Slidell, Louisiana when it crashed into the back of a semi-trailer that was travelling slowly after coming into a fog created by another truck spraying insecticide in front of the semi-trailer.

The accident killed Mansfield, Brody and Harrison and left her children (who were asleep in the back of the Buick) with minor injuries.

After the accident, the trucking industry started to fit the standard underride guard to the bottom rear of all trailers.
