Shortly before 11 p.m. on Saturday, October 1st, a man was killed while helping the driver of a disabled vehicle on the 101 Freeway in Burbank. After changing a tire on the vehicle, the 55-year-old Long Beach man was returning to his car when a 2008 Pontiac G6 swerved from its lane and struck him. He died at the scene of the crash. The driver who had just received help with his tire was hit with debris from the collision and suffered moderate trauma. Paramedics transported him to a nearby hospital for treatment. The driver of the Pontiac was not hurt. Authorities are investigating the accident, according to a California personal injury lawyer.
Burbank accounted for 543 of the 73,561 fatalities and injuries suffered in motor vehicle traffic collisions in Los Angeles County in 2009, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety’s most current data. The OTS compares the accident statistics of cities with similar populations, ranking those with the poorest records the highest. Placing in 1st is considered the worst. That year, Burbank ranked 18th out of 56 cities.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of the man who was killed while helping the driver of the disabled vehicle on the 101 Freeway. We would also like to wish the man who was injured a full recovery.
