Bakersfield Truck Accident Highway 99, South Union Avenue (Aug. 30)

Bakersfield Truck Accident Highway 99, South Union Avenue (Aug. 30)Truck Overturns on Highway 99 at South Union Ave in Bakersfield

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (August 30, 2018) -Two people were hospitalized after a box truck carrying Amazon packages overturned early Thursday morning in a major-injury crash on northbound Highway 99, according to Bakersfield Now.

The crash took place today in the northbound lanes, just north of South Union Avenue. The California Highway Patrol stated that the driver attempted to make an unsafe lane change or turn. This reportedly caused the box truck to overturn onto its right, passenger side.

Both the driver and passenger who were inside the truck were taken to the hospital with major injuries. Despite the serious nature of the injuries, the injuries were not life-threatening.

Prior to the collision, witnesses contacted the CHP to report the box truck was driving fast and weaving in and out of lanes.

Police closed down the two left lanes following the crash.

Bakersfield Crash Investigation

A full investigation into what caused this collision is underway.  Police will piece together evidence and speak with witnesses to determine fault.

We extend our heartfelt prayers to anyone hurt in this collision. 

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.
