16-year-old pedestrian hurt after car collision near Burbank Porto’s, police say

Burbank police are investigating a traffic collision in front of Porto’s Bakery and Cafe Sunday morning that left a 16-year-old boy seriously injured.

The incident occurred around 9:35 a.m. when two cars collided at the intersection of West Magnolia Boulevard and North Hollywood Way.

Sgt. Derek Green, a spokesman for the Burbank Police Department, said one of the vehicles was traveling westbound on Magnolia when it made a turn south onto Hollywood Way. It turned in front of a second vehicle, which was traveling eastbound on Magnolia.

Green said the resulting collision caused one of the vehicles to spin-out and jump onto the curb in front of entrance to Porto’s. A 16-year-old boy was standing on the sidewalk at the time and was struck by the vehicle.

The boy suffered serious injuries and was transported to a local hospital.

Alcohol and drugs were not factors in the collision, Green said.
