TAFT, Calif. (April 18, 2018) — Jazmin Lizbeth Ojeda Rosales, 19, Alejandro Arguello, 19 and Fernanda Medina Olivas, 17, all residents of Taft, died Tuesday night and three others were badly injured in a rollover crash on state Route 119, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The collision took place about 10:46 p.m. last night at Erro Ranch Road, police said. Two other teenagers, also from Taft, were injured in the crash. Police are investigating what happened, but at this time they believe the vehicle may have drifted off the road. The vehicle overturned multiple times as it went off Taft Highway (119), just east of Interstate 5 Freeway.
There were three people in the car who were not wearing seat belts, but at this time we do not know who. There were two 19-year-old occupants who survived the crash with major injuries. They were taken by ambulance to Kern Medical Center.
Police temporarily closed down Taft Highway, but has since re-opened.
The cause of the collision is under investigation.
