On Wednesday, June 5, 2019, a head-on car crash killed one in southwest Bakersfield. The Kern County auto accident happened on Taft Highway, at around 3:10 PM.
A compact car was driving on State Route 119/Taft Highway, when for an unknown reason it veered into the opposite lane of traffic.
At that time a large utility truck was driving the other way on the roadway, and was not able to stop in time. The two vehicles crashed head-on.
The driver of the compact automobile was pronounced dead at the scene.
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.
