Jan & Dean – Dead Man’s Curve
Written by News Bot on April 14, 2020
April 12, 1966: Jan Berry, half of Jan and Dean, crashed his Corvette into a parked truck near Dead Man's Curve on L.A.'s Whittier Boulevard. He suffered total paralysis for over a year, as well as extensive brain damage. Ironically, the wreck occurred two years after the duo had a hit with their single, "Dead Man's Curve". Sadly, Jan would never fully recover from the accident; he died on March 26, 2004. He was 62 years old.
