4 Car Accident at Bakersfield Intersection
BAKERSFIELD, California (April 4, 2014) — At least one person was injured Friday morning in a 4-vehicle car accident at the intersection of Di Giorgio and S. Edison roads near Giamarra Farms Inc., according to a dispatch by the California Highway Patrol.
About 5:58 a.m., CHP officers received a dispatch about the multi-vehicle car accident that was blocking lanes at the intersection of the two-lane roadway. Paramedics were also at the scene to assist those who suffered minor injuries in the collision, the report said.
At least two of the vehicles suffered significant damage and required tow trucks.
“Sometimes minor injuries can result in chronic pain if it’s not treated,” said Attorney James Johnson, founder of Johnson Attorneys Group. “Hopefully those injured in this crash seek medical attention and have a full recovery.”
