On Wednesday, August 17, 2016, A bicyclist was injured in an auto accident, in east Bakersfield. The Kern County car crash happened in the area of College Avenue, and Burton Way, at about 3:15 PM.
The California Highway Patrol reported that the man riding a bicycle and the vehicle collided. The cyclist suffered severe injuries and was taken to Kern Medical Center for treatment.
Authorities claim the man was not wearing a helmet at the time of the collision.
The fault of the accident is unknown at this time.
The Law Firm of Nelson and Rozier is currently handling a similar case arising from August 23, 2013, when a Fresno police car ran over a man on a bicycle named Angel Toscano.
In that case we were able to download the event data recorder from the police cruiser to determine pre-accident speed and acceleration of the car.
