December 7, 1933
On December 7, 1933, a runaway vehicle crashed into the storefront of Neuser's Market at 1049 Brookline Boulevard. The owner of the vehicle, G.A. Rehbein, was in church. The brakes let loose and the vehicle backed down Creedmoor Avenue and smashed into the store, owned by John Neuser. The wayward vehicle narrowly missed two pedestrians.
