66 years ago The Bullet-Shaped Horn Button Took His Left Eye

29-year-old actor, singer and entertainer Sammy Davis Jr. loses his left eye to the bullet-shaped horn button (a standard feature in 1954 and 1955 Cadillacs) in an automobile accident in Cajon Boulevard and Kendall Drive, San Bernardino, California, United States.

Davis wore an eye patch for at least six months following the accident. Later he was fitted for a glass eye which he wore for the rest of his life.
