BURBANK (CNS) - A man was killed and a woman was seriously injured in a two-vehicle collision in Burbank today.
The collision involved a white SUV and a blue sedan about 12:30 p.m. in the area of Front Street and Magnolia Boulevard, near the Golden State (5) Freeway, according to the Burbank Police Department. Responding officers found the man suffering from ``significant injuries'' in the driver's seat of the blue sedan.
``Efforts were made to extract and render aid to the male driver, but he was pronounced deceased at the scene,'' according to the BPD. ``There were no other occupants in his vehicle.'' The man's name was withheld pending notification of his next of kin.
The woman driving the SUV was taken to a hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening, injuries. No other occupants were found in the SUV. Witnesses near the scene told police they saw the blue sedan speeding before the collision, and the BPD determined through a preliminary investigation that unsafe speed was ``likely contributing factor to the collision.'' It was not immediately known whether drugs or alcohol were also a factor in the collision.
Anyone with information on the crash was asked to call the BPD Traffic Bureau at 818-238-3103.
