Johnny Carson always talked about “Beautiful Downtown Burbank.”
Perhaps the driver of this black C7 Corvette convertible was on his way to check out that city, immortalized by the legendary TV talk show host, for himself.
Unfortunately, the Stingray wound up on its passenger side after crashing through a fence along the western boundary of the Hollywood Burbank Airport about 9:45 p.m. Thursday.
The driver escaped the accident with no injuries, but his passenger wasn’t as lucky and had to be taken to a hospital in critical condition, an LAPD Valley Traffic division official told Channel 4 NBC Los Angeles News.
The crash also knocked down about 25 feet of fence on Vineland Avenue, just south of Sherman Way, according to Lucy M. Burghdorf, Hollywood Burbank Airport’s director, public affairs and communications.
The cause is under investigation, though rainy conditions could have contributed to the accident, a Channel 4 anchor speculated.
