  • From Burbank Leader:
  • A 35-year-old motorist was arrested Thursday after she allegedly struck a pedestrian while driving under the influence of drugs with her four-year-old daughter in the car, police said. Police responded to the area of Magnolia Boulevard and Avon Street just before 5 p.m. following reports of a woman – identified by police as Janny Dolson, of Sherman Oaks – driving erratically, said Burbank Police Officer Joshua Kendrick. Dolson was also reportedly observed sitting through a full green-light cycle. When police were approaching the area, Dolson reportedly sped off, and struck a 49-year-old man walking in a crosswalk, Kendrick said.

    The man was transported to a local hospital after sustaining abrasions to his head and arms, pain in his knee, and a possible broken nose. ….MORE
