On Wednesday, August 17, 2016, a big rig crash took place in Bakersfield. The Kern County tractor-trailer accident happened on State Route 58, at about 9:45 AM.
A semi truck hauling produce was driving west on Highway 58, near Union Avenue. A car also going westbound on the freeway, crashed into it, for an unexplained reason.
The impact of the collision sent the big rig out of control and it smashed into a concrete wall.
Carrots spilled all over the roadway, and lanes on the freeway were shut down for a time.
