July 5, 2017- A bicycle accident happened in east Bakersfield, on Wednesday. The Kern County truck collision occurred on Jefferson Street, at approximately 6 AM.
Bakersfield Police reported that a bicyclist was riding on Jefferson St., near Bernard, when he was hit by a garbage truck. The truck then accidentally backed over him, hitting him a second time.
The victim suffered major injuries and was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
No other information is known.
The Law Firm of Nelson and Rozier handled 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.
