first_imgLivingston was backing out of a handicapped parking spot when he lost control of the car and hit a vehicle that was on display near the store’s entrance, Ferguson said. The four people were injured under the patio, which has benches for people to sit that run three or four deep. Livingston’s car had been modified to put the gas pedal left of the brake pedal because he has a right leg ailment. He told police the gas pedal got stuck. He was taken away in a wheelchair. “He took out all the benches,” said Larry Frye of Burbank, who witnessed the crash as he left the store.

The incident occurred about 11:15 a.m. at the Costco at 1051 Burbank Blvd., where a 1991 Lincoln Town Car plowed 150-200 feet through the patio before it struck a pillar and came to a stop, Burbank police Sgt. Matt Ferguson said. The driver, Robert Livingston of West Hollywood, who is disabled, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of prescription drugs. He was not injured. The victims included a 1-year-old, her 29-year-old mother and her 54-year-old grandmother. All three did not appear to be seriously injured, Ferguson said. A 49-year-old man suffered a broken pelvis and injuries to his head and extremities. None of their names were released. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img read more
