Bakersfield Highway 99 Crash Near Merle Haggard Drive (Oct. 4)

 Bakersfield Highway 99 Crash Near Merle Haggard Drive (Oct. 4)8 Injured in Bakersfield Car Accident on Highway 99

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (Oct. 4, 20118) — Eight people suffered a range of injuries early Thursday morning following a 4-vehicle collision on the northbound Highway 99, according to Bakersfield Now.

The crash was reported just after 6 a.m. on Oct. 4th, just north of Merle Haggard Drive, according to the California Highway Patrol.

There were eight to 10 people involved in the crash who complained of pain.

The initial crash was caused when a pedestrian walked in front of a 2018 Dodge Ram driven by Oscar Diaz, 29, of Bakersfield.   The pedestrian was struck and his vehicle swerved and caused a chain-reaction crash with other vehicles behind him.

Juan Sosa, 37, of Bakersfield, was driving behind Diaz in a 1994 Toyota Tundra and was caught up in the collision. Alfredo Sanchez, 35, of Bakersfield, was directly behind Diaz driving a 2007 Honda Fit when his vehicle collided with others.

Driving behind Sosa was Maria Isabel Armas, 43, of Bakersfield in a 2004 Ford Focus.
The pedestrian who was hit has not been identified.
The crash caused a major traffic jam and frustrated motorists were reportedly cutting the barbed wire fence along the right shoulder of the freeway to get around the traffic and onto Saco Road.

The cause of the crash is under investigation to determine fault.

Those of us at Johnson Attorneys Group hope all those affected by this collision get the medical care necessary for a full recovery.
