Burbank Police were first on scene and reported one car with minor damage in the middle of the intersection, and one car up against a light pole on the northwest corner of the intersection. The vehicle that struck the pole, a beige sedan, was reported to have gone through the intersection heading westbound on Magnolia just as the light turned red, clipping the car that was turning north onto Hollywood Way off of Magnolia. The sedan was then flung sideways and smashed into the pole on the passenger side.
Burbank Police and Firefighters responded to the 2500 block of W. Magnolia Blvd. on Saturday afternoon, after several citizens called 911 to report that a woman had been struck on by a car in front of the Handy Market.
Police responded “Code 3″ (red lights and siren) along with firefighters. When they arrived on scene, they found a woman lying in the number one lane of eastbound traffic. Paramedics treated the unidentified victim at the scene, and transported her to Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center with the complaint of pain.
Several traffic officers started interviewing all the witnesses who saw the accident happen. On Saturdays, the Handy Market sets up a large grill in their parking lot, and sells barbecued tri-tip and chicken. Additional officers blocked Magnolia Blvd. in both directions until the accident was cleared up.
Burbank police and fire units were called to the intersection of Magnolia Blvd. and Reese Pl. for a two car traffic accident Thursday afternoon. A older model Ford pick-up truck and a compact sedan collided in the intersection, which is controlled by a traffic signal.
Burbank Fire Department Paramedics transported the driver of one of the cars to Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center, with moderate injuries.
The cause of the accident is under investigation to determine who was at fault.
