A 31-year-old woman was arrested after allegedly injuring two pedestrians, including one child in a stroller, in a hit-and-run collision in Burbank Tuesday.

Paramedics and Burbank Police Department officers responded at about 8:55 a.m. to the intersection of Glenoaks Boulevard and Palm Avenue on reports of the collision and found the adult victim and the child suffering from serious injuries, according to Sgt. Emil Brimway.

The victims were taken to a hospital, where they were listed in stable condition.

Officers searched the area after obtaining information from witnesses and found the suspect vehicle in the area of Alameda Avenue and Flower Street, Brimway said. The driver, Sadeghi Taraneh of Burbank, was arrested and booked on suspicion of felony hit-and-run.

An investigation into the collision revealed Taraneh was driving eastbound on Palm Avenue toward Glenoaks Boulevard and allegedly failed to stop at the marked limit before a stop sign as she was attempting to make a right turn, causing her vehicle to strike the victims, Brimway said.

Drugs, alcohol and speed were ruled out as factors in the collision, police said.

Taraneh’s bail was set at $100,000 and she was set to appear in court Thursday.

An investigation into the collision is ongoing and anyone with information was asked to contact BPD Detective Ryan Murphy at 818-238-3103.
