Motorcyclist Killed in Bakersfield Hit-and-Run at White and Letzring Lanes

BAKERSFIELD (January 27, 2018) – A fatal alleged hit-and-run collision occurred in the area of White and Letzring lanes on Friday evening, according to Kern Golden Empire and 23 ABC News.

The accident took place at about 7:30 p.m.

As per the reports, Bakersfield police said a man was riding a motorcycle when he collided with a small Honda car. The Honda pulled out onto eastbound White Lane from Letzring Lane and turned into the path of a motorcyclist.

The force of the crash forced the rider to slam into a white SUV at the intersection of White and Letzring lanes.

The man died at the scene. His name has not been yet released pending notification of next of kin.

Meanwhile, police affirmed that the driver of the Honda stopped and cooperated with the authorities while the other motorist fled.

The second vehicle was later found abandoned near Planz and South Real roads. The suspect was described as a woman in her 40s, with a possible dark complexion and wearing a white printed shirt that appeared to be medical scrubs.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the BPD at (661) 327-7111.


We offer our prayers and most heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of the man during such a difficult time.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
