WASCO, California — According to Bakersfield Now, a deadly DUI car crash took place Wednesday evening at the intersection of Highway 43 and Prospect in Wasco.

The deadly accident happened at around 8:00 p.m. involving three vehicles.

In an article by The Bakersfield Californian, deputies said 51-year-old Erwin De La Pena was driving a Ford Ranger when he turned north on Highway 43.

The Ford went directly into the path of a Honda Civic which was going south at the time. The Civic was then hit by a Ford Expedition headed south on the highway.

The driver of the Civic was found dead in the roadway. Bakersfield Now identified the deceased as 41-year-old Carolina Vasquez.

The motorist in the Expedition, a man in his 20s, was transported to Kern Medical Center with minor injuries.

 

Meanwhile, De La Pena was determined to have been under the influence and was arrested on suspicion of DUI causing injury or death and failing to yield the right of way,


We are deeply saddened by the news of this tragedy. We offer our prayers and most heartfelt condolences to the friends and family of the woman during such difficult time.

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.

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.

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.
