February 6, 2015- A big rig accident closed eastbound Highway 58 to traffic, in Bakersfield.  The Kern County semi truck collision happened Friday, at about 7:30 AM.

It is reported that a tractor-trailer blocked all the eastbound lanes of the freeway, after the crash caused the rig to jackknife.  Traffic was backed up onto Highway 99, until the wreckage could be cleared.  The semi accident took place on the highway at Mt. Vernon Avenue.
