Fiery Big Rig Collision on Highway 99 near Paname Lane

Visalia Nursing Home LawyerJohn Rozier has the following accident report; On Sunday, September 14, 2014, a big rig crash closed all lanes on Highway 99 North, in Kern County.  The semi truck accident happened in Bakersfield, at about 11:38 PM.

A tractor-trailer was driving northbound on Highway 99, when it smashed into the back of another big rig, near Panama Lane.  The impact of the collision caused one of the semi trucks to lose control, crash into the shoulder, and spill its load of beer onto the freeway.
