Kern County Truck Collision Ends in Fatality on Merle Haggard Drive

On Saturday, December 26, 2015, a multi-vehicle crash ends in the death of one victim, in Oildale, north of Bakersfield.  The Kern County truck accident happened on Merle Haggard and Airport drives, at about 12:30 PM.

Jeffrey Dale Sellers, 52, was driving a red Jeep Grand Cherokee, headed east on Merle Haggard Drive.


Deborah Ann Mason, 63, was the driver of a Chevy Silverado, and was westbound on Merle Haggard Dr.

The Jeep, for an unknown reason, drifted over the median of the roadway and crashed into the left side of the pickup truck.  The SUV then collided with a semi truck that was legally parked on the side of the street.

Authorities pronounced Sellers dead at the scene of the accident.

Mason was not hurt.
