Pedestrian Dies After Being Struck By Vehicle
Burbank, CA (November 9, 2017) – An elderly man from Burbank has died after being struck by a vehicle Wednesday morning.
On November 8, 2017, at about 7:16 A.M., Thomas Jones, an 80-year-old resident of Burbank, was crossing Glenoaks Boulevard at the intersection with Lincoln Street when he was struck by a motor vehicle. Jones was transported to a local hospital, but died as a result of his injuries.
The driver of the vehicle which struck Jones remained on-scene and cooperated with the investigation. Neither drugs nor alcohol appear to be factors in this collision. Excessive speed also does not appear to be a factor.
