Jayne Mansfield June 29th of June 1967 – Highway 90 – Slidell, Louisiana 1966 Buick Electra 225 After a performance in a sleazy cabaret in Beloxi, Jane Mansfield is sitting at the front of the car, in between Ronnie Harrison, her driver, and Sam Brody, her companion, heading to New Orleans. On the back seat, the three children are sleeping soundly. On the road, a truck is blocked by a tractor that is spraying insecticide. A cloud of smoke spreads. This is probably the reason why Ronnie Harrison, around 2 o’clock in the morning, drives the Buick at high speed, under the truck. The three adults die instantly. The children come out almost unhurt. After her death it was recommended as a safety measure that all trucks in the United States should have a special bumper fitted at the back named “Mansfield Bar” Let’s celebrate the dead!
