SUV barrels through bakery Pastry shop had installed barriers after similar crash five years ago, but they arent enough. By Zain Shauk Published: Last Updated Tuesday, September 22, 2009 9:29 PM PDT NORTHWEST GLENDALE — When a woman drove her car through the front of Movses Golden Pastry five years ago, owner Armen Nazarian thought he could protect his store by installing steel barriers in front of the property. He was wrong. Early Tuesday, police said, a Burbank woman in the parking lot slammed on the gas pedal of her white Toyota 4Runner and barreled through the Glenoaks Boulevard corner bakery. She evaded a steel barrier and smashed through a storefront window, refrigerators, tables and chairs. No one was hurt, police said. The SUV skidded to a halt on the property after crashing through a second window and nearly rumbling off an elevated outdoor seating area facing Glenoaks Boulevard. I didnt really expect that this was going to happen again, said Nazarian, who snapped digital photos of the store as firefighters and police helped clear warped steel wreckage and shattered glass from around the vehicle. Assortments of pastries and Armenian breads sat amid shards of glass in broken refrigerated displays that cost about $10,000 each. Displays had fallen from shelves along the back wall of the shop, Nazarian said. The 2004 crash had cost about $30,000 to repair, but Tuesdays damage, combined with lost profits from days that Nazarian will have to close for repairs and health inspector visits will likely triple that total, he said. He expected insurance to pick up the tab. Glendale and Burbank firefighters used a rotary saw to clear a railing, allowing them to move the 4Runner off the elevated seating area and onto a flatbed tow truck. Employees at the 1755 W. Glenoaks Blvd. store said they feared for their lives upon hearing the SUV plow through the front of the shop. I just heard a boom, the store started shaking, and I just saw the car is coming and I ran, said Lusine Petrosyan, a cashier who was working behind the store counter and looking the other direction when the crash occurred. She darted to the stores back room with other workers. The accident was not only avoidable, but could have been deadly, Glendale police Officer Larry Ballesteros said. If somebody wouldve been standing at the counter ordering a tray of fruit tarts or something, he wouldve been killed, Ballesteros said. No charges have been filed against the driver, Heranosh Baghomian, because the accident occurred on private property, Ballesteros said. Nazarian, who owns the strip mall, was concerned not only that a similar incident had happened before, but that another property he owns, at the intersection of Chevy Chase Drive and Verdugo Road, has also been struck twice by out-of-control drivers, he said. Im very confused, he said. Similar accidents have happened in the last two years, with drivers ramming through a Starbucks on Foothill Boulevard and a Supercuts on Glendale Avenue, injuring bystanders in the process, Ballesteros said. Its too common, he said. Nazarian questioned whether enough Glendale drivers were safe enough to be on the roads, echoing concerns frequently raised by residents fed up with the citys notoriously accident-ridden streets. The Department of Motor Vehicles is consistently working to improve drivers license testing standards, said spokeswoman Jan Mendoza, who insisted that most of Californias 26 million motorists are safe. Weve got millions of drivers out there, she said. Its a numbers game for sure.

Fj cruiser found paradise I Just noticed while watching this Video that my engine is making a some what noisy knock, I bought this truck in January and also notice the smell of burnt oil coming from the pipe, fast forward today, that knock is all but absent at idle, purrs like a brand new Camry. and there is little or no smell coming from the exhaust, I did check the Car FAx and the previous owner had a love relation ship with jiffy lube and Valvoline. I had a aha moment, this explains why the car was knocking etc. Jiffy lube hire trained monkeys tom change there oil, my guess that mine was filled too high and was using a sun standard grade of oil....should be fine now that I put in the right amount of Mobile !, changed filters etc.... I also notice that the oil pan gasket was leaking, yes due to improper oil changes . rule of thumb, dont take you care to one of these grease monkeys, take it to a certified trust worthy mechanic or dealership, insist that use the proper oil for your vehicle, if you taking your car in for tune ups let them change it for you when your there or change it yourself, on a FJ its a piece of cake, oil filter is on top and the car doesn't need jacking,
