A 21-year-old woman died after being struck by a pickup truck driven by a suspected drunk driver outside a Burbank radio station where pop star Justin Timberlake was being interviewed, police said Tuesday.
Police said Anne White of Burbank suffered "horrific injuries" when she was struck and then dragged for a block about 10:15 p.m. Monday. She was later pronounced dead at Providence St. Josephs Hospital, Burbank Police Lt. Tim Stehr said.
Police arrested Cameron Duty, 23, of Sylmar on suspicion of murder, driving under the influence and hit-and-run.
Duty, who is being held in lieu of $1-million bail, is scheduled to be arraigned today in Burbank Superior Court.
Fans had gathered behind the KIIS-FM (102.7) studios at Warner Boulevard and Avon Street shortly after 10 p.m. to catch a glimpse of Timberlake, who was there taping an interview, police said.
Witnesses told police investigators that Duty was boisterous--playing loud music from his truck's stereo--and that he appeared intoxicated, Stehr said.
Police said Duty jumped into his truck and drove in reverse at a high rate of speed across Warner Boulevard and over the curb.
