On Sunday, July 3, 2015, a deadly solo-vehicle crash took place in the Bakersfield area. The Kern County car collision occurred on Alfred Harrell Highway, during the afternoon hours.
Marvin Palma, 27, was driving a Nissan Altima, with passenger Francis Lopez, 25, and two children. The Nissan was traveling on the highway at about 70 miles per hour.
The Altima lost control, swerved, and crashed into a guardrail.
Palma and Lopez both died at the scene of the accident.
The two juveniles in the back seat suffered moderate injuries, and were taken to a local hospital.
While our condolences go out to the friends and family of the victims, we recognize that no monetary sum can ease the pain and loss felt after a tragedy such as this. However, just monetary compensation can help ease the burden of medical bills, final expenses, and help support any dependents left behind by the deceased.
