Fuel Tanker and Truck Collide on Highway 46 & 33 in Kern County

June 25, 2014- A big rig and truck collision took place near Lost Hills, northwest of Bakersfield, on Wednesday.  The Kern County accident left both drivers seriously hurt, after the vehicles crashed head-on.

A fuel tanker semi truck was driving in the area of State Route 46 and Route 33 near Blackwell’s Corner.  The tanker, driven by Jose Martinez, reportedly ran a red light at the intersection of the highways.  This caused the big rig to hit a black pickup truck, that was driven by David Blanchet, head-on.
