Burbank Police arrested Gregory Martin, age 45 and a Burbank resident, for hit and run DUI after witnesses provided officers with the license plate of a maroon truck that struck a vehicle at Hollywood Way and Chandler Blvd. and then left the scene. The accident occurred at 7:35 p.m. on March 10 when Martin’s 1998 Ford pickup truck struck a vehicle occupied by a man and a woman.
Officers traced the license plate to Martin and an address on the 200 block of Lincoln Street. When police arrived at the address, they saw the truck parked in the driveway and observed evidence of damage to the front bumper area, according to Sgt. Darin Ryburn of the Burbank Police Department.
Martin exited the house and made statements to the officers to the effect he had been in the area of Hollywood Way and Chandler and involved in an accident, added Ryburn.
Officers noticed Martin displayed objective symptoms of alcohol intoxication and administered a field sobriety test, which Martin did not pass satisfactorily. Martin was arrested on two misdemeanor charges for DUI and hit and run and booked at the Burbank Jail. His vehicle was impounded and bail set at $25,000.
