In 1958, Larry King got into a car accident with JFK, who was then a senator, while in Palm Beach. In his autobiography, King wrote about how he had just arrived to the area from Brooklyn and was so distracted by the swanky South Florida locale that he wasn’t really paying attention to the road. Kennedy was pretty angry about the whole incident and yelled “How could you?. Early Sunday morning, no traffic, not a cloud in the sky, I’m parked—how could you run into me?”  All King could say was "Senator, do you want to exchange information from our driver’s licenses?"  King then stated “Eventually he calmed down, and he said he’d forget the whole thing if we just promised to vote for him when he ran for president. We agreed, and he drove away—though not before saying "Stay waaay behind me.”
