Hit-and-Run SUV Accident Kills Pedestrian on Panama Lane, in Bakersfield

Central California’s Wrongful Death Attorney John Rozier has the following accident report; On Sunday, January 10, 2016, a fatal hit-and-run collision occurred in southeast Bakersfield.  The Kern County vehicle crash happened on Panama Lane, at about 6:41 PM.

A pedestrian was walking in the roadway with a shopping cart, in the 400 block of Panama Lane.  What might have been an SUV, or pickup truck, hit the walker, near Union Avenue, when the victim was outside of a crosswalk.

The 74 year old man suffered fatal injuries and died while in the hospital.

The vehicle fled the scene, and police are still trying to apprehend the driver.

The police report may take several weeks to prepare-in the meantime we can probably obtain a cover sheet of the accident report for the family of the deceased.  Pleas give Mr. Rozier a call at 559-713-0159, or contact us online.
