Police identify crash victim

A Burbank man killed in a motorcycle accident Tuesday has been

identified as 47-year-old Gerald Leonard Fink.

Fink was driving south on First Street at about 35 mph along a

gradual curve in the road near Cypress Street when he lost control of


his motorcycle and struck the curb, police said. He was thrown from

his motorcycle, striking the curb and then a tree, which caused

massive head injuries, police said.

Paramedics from the Burbank Fire Depart- ment treated him at the


scene before he was taken to Providence St. Joseph Medical Center,

where he was pronounced dead.

The cause of the crash is still under investi- gation. Anyone with

information is asked to call Det. Paul Orlowski at 238-3100.
