Burbank Police and Firefighters responded to Verdugo Ave. just west of San Fernando Blvd. late Sunday evening for a traffic accident involving a reported overturned truck with an injured party.

Burbank Police were first to arrive and they found the the driver of the pickup had self-extricated herself, but needed Paramedics to look at a bloody knee.

Apparently the driver of the pickup was delivering magazines and racks and was pulling into the driveway of the auto repair business when she was struck from behind and overturned. The lone female occupant of the pickup was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries, the other car suffered moderate damage and required towing.

Thousands of copies of the magazine she was distributing ended all over the street, with it’s cover highlighting truck insurance, which we hope she had.
