Large Collision at York and Figueroa Injures Six

by LA1 News

   Memorial Day Weekend began with a huge crash at the main corner in Highland Park Friday night. Two vehicles were involved at just after 9:00 p.m. It was described by a cashier at Penny's Restaurant across the street as a classic "t-bone" incident. One vehicle was attempting to make a left turn and the other was trying to enter the intersection just as the light changed. There was no immediate sign that alcohol or drugs played a role.

   Firefighters from LAFD fire stations, including 12 and 55 in Highland Park, responded with heavy equipment and the 'Jaws of Life' used to extract a male occupant from one vehicle, a light gray late-1990s model Lincoln Town Car with Dayton spoke rims. The other car involved was a dark gray early 2000s Nissan Altima. It had at least one female inside. There were numerous occupants in each vehicle. Six persons in total were transported to hospitals.

Bob McGibbon Sold His Body Shop to the Hipsters

by LA1 News

   Robert “Bob” McGibbon was back in town this weekend. He stopped by the shop to square away a few things before the big move to Arizona. McGibbon, the owner of “McGibbon’s Auto Body" on York Blvd in Highland Park, certainly deserves the break. He served his country honorably during Vietnam then served his community as an honest businessman and 35-year member of the American Legion’s Highland Park Post #206.

   Bob McGibbon says he purchased the site of McGibbon’s Auto Body for $15,000 back in 1965. “It was still a lot of money back then,” he says. “Plus we bought the two-bedroom house a couple years later.” Asked how much he sold the auto body shop for now, McGibbon replied with a price of $1.5 million. “I sold it to the guy down the street who bought the pool hall recently,” he said.
