February 2 wrongful death accident in Bakersfield at Ashe Road and Panama Lane kills Michelle Maxwell

On February 2 Michelle Maxwell was killed in a wrongful death accident at Panama Lane and Ashe Road in Bakersfield. Michelle Maxwell was riding in the passenger seat of a Hyundai driven by her 15-year-old daughter, Michaela Maxwell. They were traveling north on Ashe Road, having just turned off of Panama Lane, when the car was hit on the passenger side by a Ford F-150 pickup. The pickup was driven by Mitchell Green. Reportedly Green had run a red light. There was no sign of the truck having braked at all before the crash.

The crash caused Green's pickup to hit a power pole and catch fire. Other motorists pulled Green from the burning vehicle before emergency crews arrived. The power pole was severed as a result of the crash. This knocked out power to 4,600 customers.

Michaela Maxwell suffered many injuries as a result of the crash. She underwent surgery for a broken wrist, broken leg and facial and stomach bruises. Michelle Maxwell is remembered as a wife and mother who served her community and loved babies.

Green's injuries were originally listed as moderate, but later he was listed in critical condition at Kern Medical Center and was later transferred to Fresno Community Regional Medical Center. Green, an off-duty fire fighter, is said to have been drunk at the time of the accident. He will be booked into jail with charges of vehicular manslaughter and felony drunken driving.

The attorneys of Nelson and Rozier send their condolences out to the Maxwell Family. While monetary compensation cannot bring back the deceased it can help to cover the final expenses of Mrs. Maxwell as well as pay for medical bills and pain and suffering for Michaela Maxwell.
