June 23, 2014- A pickup truck accident, in Kern County, took place on Monday afternoon. The vehicle collision happened south of Bakersfield.
The driver of a GMC pickup truck; Juan Sanchez Iniguez, of Lamont, was driving on South Edison Road at Buena Vista Boulevard. The GMC did not stop at the stop sign that was at the intersection of the roadway. As he ran the stop sign another car was entering the intersection. Iniguez swerved to avoid hitting the vehicle, which caused him to lose control and the pickup overturned.
Iniguez was ejected from the truck, and suffered serious injuries. He was airlifted to the hospital, where he later died from his wounds.
A 15 year old passenger in the GMC was also injured and taken to the hospital for treatment.
