Sole Survivor of Deadly Burbank Crash Released From Hospital
The sole survivor of a horrific crash that claimed the lives of five young people in Burbank was released from the hospital on Thursday.
Savannah Underwood, 18, suffered broken bones in her right leg and a crushed pelvis during the Sept. 28 crash. She was transported to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center.
Underwood left the hospital in a wheelchair just after 5 p.m. accompanied by family members.
Underwood was seriously injured in the early-morning crash North San Fernando Boulevard near an off-ramp of the 5 Freeway.
A four-door sedan carrying six young people lost control and slammed into a concrete pillar at a high rate of speed, according to Burbank police.
The car burst into flames and was fully engulfed by the time officers arrived.
“This was a tough one. I’ve been here 28 years and the five fatalities is pretty rough,” Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn said during a news conference after the crash.
