BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (August 31, 2018)  – A big rig truck and a car collided Friday morning on Highway 99, according to the California Highway Patrol .

The preliminary report stated that the driver of the Audi hit the center median, lost control and got pinned under the big rig.

Paramedics responded and rushed the driver of the Audi to a hospital with major injuries. There were no other reported injuries suffered in the crash.

Police are investigating whether or not the Audi driver was DUI.

Bakersfield Crash Investigation

A full investigation into what caused this major-injury crash is underway.

We extend our heartfelt prayers to the injured driver. 

There are many steps that should be taken following a collision, but if you were injured the first step should be to obtain medical help. A police report will be necessary to file an insurance claim against the at-fault driver who caused the collision. However, it’s important to note that many insurance companies will fight these claims or offer far less than a person is owed.

We hope you are able to get the help you need, but if not call us at 855-703-4186 to request a free consultation.
