Burbank Police and Firefighters responded to the intersection of Alameda Ave. and Victory Blvd. Friday afternoon following a traffic accident that sent the two cars involved crashing over the curb and onto the sidewalk.
One of the vehicles ended up at the front entrance of Art-Wave the Art Warehouse. The company, located on the southwest corner of the intersection, has a number of large paintings on display outside the business. Several of the paintings were stuck by the car.
Burbank Paramedics treated both drivers at the scene. One driver was transported to Providence-St. Joseph Medical Center with what appeared to be minor non-life threatening injuries. No one on the busy street corner were struck. Normally, the company has a man standing on the corner holding a large sign advertising the business. A crossing guard is also normally at that corner, but had already gone off duty prior to the accident, which occurred shortly after 4 p.m..
The cause of the accident is under investigation by the Burbank Police Department.
