Statue of Limitations: L.A. Times Sculpture Kills Woman

For nearly 90 years "General" Harrison Gray Otis' statue has glowered down from its pedestal as Khaliunaa Dranov, 23, of Los Angeles, was killed in the collision, and three other women critically injured, according to the L.A. Times. The women's car, a Toyota Scion, was heading eastbound when it leapt the curbed and slammed into the statue. According to USC Digital Archives, a third statue once accompanied Otis and the newsboy, but was removed, ironically, after a car hit it.
