A memorial on a rural lane
On a small rural lane in Anthony, you'll find this memorial to five young men, ages 18-20, who were killed in a car crash in January 2008.
One of them borrowed his father's 2008 BMW. At about 3:45 am, they drove down the runway adjacent to Jumbolair Estates, the home of John Travolta, at speeds approaching 200 miles per hour. At the end of the runway is an 85 foot embankment. The car soared into the air and crashed into a tree. All five were killed.
