December 11, 2011- A man from San Jose was killed Sunday on Interstate 5 after a crash flipped his vehicle, near Buttonwillow, west of Bakersfield. The accident occurred at about 1 PM.
Lope Cruz Fuentes, of San Jose, was northbound on I-5, south of Buena Vista Road, just north of Highway 223, in his Mitsubishi SUV. Fuentes drifted into the center median of the freeway. He tried to drive back onto the highway and over-corrected, causing the SUV to roll several times.
Fuentes died at the scene of the accident. Three passengers in the Mitsubishi suffered moderate to major injuries and were taken to the hospital.
