On Monday, April 16, at 5:15 p.m., Burbank Police and Paramedics responded to a traffic accident involving a bicyclist who was hit by a car on Alameda Ave. between Mariposa St. and Griffith Park Dr.
Lenny Trinh, 52 of Burbank, was riding eastbound on Alameda Ave. in the designated bike lane when the driver’s door of a parked car opened, causing him to be thrown forward onto the ground. Trinh was then struck by a passing pickup truck, driving eastbound.
Trinh was transported to Providence St. Joseph Medical Center and was soon pronounced deceased.
Both the pickup truck driver and the driver of the parked vehicle cooperated and remained at the scene to speak with officers.
It appears that neither drugs or alcohol were factors in the accident.
Burbank Police Traffic Detectives are currently investigating the incident.
Christmas in quarantine is not the ideal situation as we have all learned by now. Holiday gatherings are moving to Zoom and Google Meets this year while online shopping is becoming increasingly popular as it’s the safest and easiest way to shop in the time of Covid. While big retailers like Target and Amazon are making online shopping convenient, small businesses are suffering. Burbank’s mom and pop shops are doing what they can to entice their customers back to shopping small including moving to online sales.
