On Thursday, October 20, 2016, a bicyclist was hurt in a vehicle accident in Oildale, north of Bakersfield. The Kern County pickup truck collision happened in the area of Lincoln Avenue, during the morning hours.
Authorities reported that a white Dodge pickup truck crashed into a bicycle near Lincoln and North Chester avenues.
The biker suffered severe injuries and was taken to Kern Medical Center for treatment.
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.
