Burbank, CA – A 101-year-old man was killed when attempting to cross a four-lane street and was struck by a 91-year-old driver. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Otto Jensen, who was a former boxer born in Denmark, is stated to have led an active lifestyle prior to being fatally injured in the accident last week.
Harry Fisher, a friend of Jensen’s is quoted by the AP as stating of his daily visits to a local senior center where he played pool, “His stamina was incredible…He would play 22 straight games. He wouldn’t even sit down for a break. He would stand from one o’clock to six-thirty, nonstop.”
Fisher further noted, “I believe the man could have gone to 105, at least.”
Mary Beaumont, the driver who struck Jensen, reportedly did not sustain injuries in the accident.
