On Monday, September 5, 2016, a rollover pickup truck accident ended in fatality, west of Shafter. The Kern County vehicle crash took place on Poplar Avenue, at around 1:00 AM.
A Chevy Colorado, driven by a 20-year-old man, was traveling north on Poplar Avenue, near San Diego Street.
The Chevrolet lost control after the driver drifted to the right of the street and off the east roadway edge. The pickup then swerved off the westside of the road, after overcorrecting, and overturned multiple times.
The victim reportedly was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the truck.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
