The Crash at Farrell's Ice Cream Parlor
In Sacramento, CA - September 24, 1972

The Crash Site Today...

The Farrell's Ice Cream Parlour on Freeport Boulevard was not restored or rebuilt.  The 'Crossroads' shopping center continued retail operations until recently, when it was converted into Sacramento's public safety administration building.

Local residents, led by one of the survivors of the mishap, used the opportunity to raise funds jointly with the city to built a memorial at the crash site to the victims.
