A 65-year-old Burbank man was killed Tuesday morning after his motorcycle collided with a big rig at Buena Vista Street and Burbank Boulevard, officials said — the second fatality on city streets in less than a week.
The motorcyclist, who authorities identified as Galo German Ulloa, was traveling south on Buena Vista Street about 6:20 a.m., Burbank Police Lt. J.J. Puglisi said.
A big rig traveling north on Buena Vista Street made a left turn onto Burbank Boulevard, striking Ulloa in the intersection and dragging him about 100 feet, Puglisi added.
"[The truck driver] said he did not see the motorcycle," Puglisi said.
Ulloa, who was wearing a helmet, was trapped under the truck and died at the scene, Puglisi said. The truck driver, identified as 40-year-old Jesus Hernandez of Paramount, was driving for Jones Chemicals, police said.
"There were no signs that [the truck driver] was under the influence," Puglisi said. "No arrests. [We] just got his information and he was released from the scene."
