roadster crash o I -5 in calif.

By rustman

While this is news we never want to hear, the roadster community has been hit hard recently....

First, we were informed Saturday morning that Bob Cano, longtime L.A. Roadster, and then So-Cal. Roadster member, had succumbed to injuries on Friday incurred from an accident in his '32 hiboy....

Then late last evening, we were notified that Dave Allen, current keeper of the famed Boyce Asquith hiboy was returning home from Del Mar, having left on Saturday to avoid the possible rain scheduled; somewhere near Fresno, while running on I-5, a gust of wind hit him, forcing the right rear tire off of the an attempt to correct, and still fighting the wind, the roadster slid sideways, ending in the roadster rolling, and flipping....

Dave is in the hospital in Fresno, suffered extensive damage, reportedly a broken collarbone, shoulder, ribs, as well as leg and arm damage,, with the doctors recommending amputation of his arm, which Dave's wife insisted 'no way', repair as you can...Linda, as well as Charlie Lambitecco (?) and several other good friends from Fresno are with him at the hospital....
A sad day.....
Sherm please pray
