BAKERSFIELD: Driver Injured After Insulation Falls from Truck onto Highway 99
BAKERSFIELD, California (May 5, 2015) — One person was hurt Tuesday morning after their car collided with insulation that fell off a flatbed truck on the State Route Highway 99 at the eastbound State Route Highway 58, according to a California Highway Patrol dispatch.
About 6:56 a.m., CHP officers say several drivers were involved in the ensuing crash including a white Chevrolet Trailblazer, white pickup truck, a van and a white flatbed truck with aluminum side rails that was carrying a load of insulation that fell into the roadway. One of the drivers was complaining of pain and was waiting in the center divider for paramedics to respond.
The California Highway Patrol will investigate the cause of the crash and issue a report with their findings.
“It’s fortunate this accident was not worse than it was,” said Attorney James Johnson. “Motorists are required to secure their loads before traveling on roadways and can be held liable for injuries or property damaged caused when items fall off.”
