A Burbank man was taken to the hospital in critical condition after a truck turned in front of him, causing the rider to be ejected and was thrown into a side window that was in the bed of the truck.

Paramedics were dispatched at 5:00 pm Wednesday to the intersection of Griffith Park and Victory where the pickup truck made a left hand turn after coming eastbound on Victory onto Griffith Park, where the motorcycle struck the unidentified woman’s truck. Police at the scene did not believe that the motorcycle rider was speeding at the time of the accident.

When police first arrived at the scene, they assisted the rider who was now in the bed of the truck, until paramedics arrived. The rider (who was only identified as a Burbank resident) was taken to the hospital.
