On Sunday, April 30, 2017, a south Bakersfield hit-and-run accident killed one. The Kern County pedestrian collision happened on Fairview Road, at about 9:45 PM.
Authorities reported that a dark-colored Chevy or GMC pickup truck was driving west on Fairview Road, near South Union Avenue. At that time a pedestrian was walking across the roadway, and the vehicle hit him.
The pickup then drove off without stopping.
The victim died at the scene of the crash.
While our condolences go out to the friends and family of the victim, 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.
