Eminglio Hernandez Injured in South Lake Road Crash Near Taft

Two Injured, One Killed in Crash on South Lake Road

 Eminglio Hernandez Injured in South Lake Road Crash Near Taft TAFT, Calif. (March 30, 2022) — Eminglio Hernandez, 38, of Taft, was injured in a head-on crash on South Lake Road near Taft that killed a 31-year-old Taft woman.

Jose Abel Espinoza, 24, of Maricopa, was also hurt in the traffic accident.

The two-vehicle crash occurred about 12:22 p.m. on March 28th, near Gardner Field Road just southwest of Bakersfield, according to the California Highway Patrol.

CHP officials reported Eminglio Hernandez was riding in a 2012 Acura driven by the woman. The two were traveling eastbound on South Lake Road when for unknown reasons, the vehicle reportedly veered over into westbound lanes and collided with a white 2002 Chevrolet pickup truck driven by Jose Espinoza.

The crash happened roughly three miles east of Gardner Field Road and completely blocked the roadway, police said.

Paramedics responded and located the woman who was driving the Acura lying on the right shoulder. Soon after their arrival, she died following the collision. Authorities believe she was not wearing a seat belt. Eminglio Hernandez survived the crash with injuries.

Meanwhile, Jose Espinoza suffered a serious injury. Paramedics transported both Espinoza and Hernandez to Kern Medical for further treatment.

Investigators are working on the case and will determine fault. The roadway reopened by 3:18 p.m.

The crash remains under investigation.

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. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
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.

You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case.
