 Fatal Oildale Pedestrian Accident on Olive Drive, State Road

Man, 60, Killed in Crash on Olive Drive

BAKERSFIELD, CALIF. (May 15, 2023) — A fatal Oildale pedestrian accident happened Sunday morning on Olive Drive, just east of State Road.

The collision occurred around 4:23 a.m. on May 14th, according to Bakersfield Now.

A 60-year-old man was walking in a southbound direction across Olive Drive. He was apparently not in a marked crosswalk when an oncoming driver in a 2016 Toyota traveling eastbound on Olive Drive hit him. The driver told authorities they were unable to avoid the victim and struck him in the roadway.

CHP officials noted that factors such as the roadway’s insufficient lighting and the fact that the man was wearing dark-colored clothing contributed to the accident.

The driver stopped the vehicle and cooperated with the police investigation.

Witnesses or anyone with information about it may call the CHP Bakersfield Area at (661) 396-6600.
