Dean was driving his new 550 Porsche Spyder to Salinas, California, where he planned to enter it in a race. At 5:45 p.m. at the intersection of Routes 466 (now 46) and 41 near Cholame, a 1950 Ford turned in front of the sports car and Dean was unable to avoid a collision with it. September 30, 2005 will mark the 50th anniversary of James Dean's tragic death in 1955.
