Historic Caption: Collide at Intersection - Thirty persons were injured in Los Angeles when two trolley cars crashed at a street intersection. The car at the left failed to make a boulevard stop and struck the other car.

Research suggests this accident took place on May 9, 1938 on Jefferson Blvd. at one of three possible intersections: McClintock Avenue, Maphe Avenue or San Pedro Street. The car numbers are not visible in the photo.
