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.
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.
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.
