Delano Fatal Crash Driver and Pond Roads; Bakersfield Man KilledJose Rocha-Diaz Killed, 2 Injured in Truck Crash

DELANO (September 14, 2017)Jose Florencio Rocha-Diaz, 20, of Bakersfield was killed, and two others were injured in a traffic collision at Driver and Pond roads Wednesday morning, according to ABC 23.

The accident happened when a passenger vehicle traveling on Pond Road drove through the intersection while a big rig was crossing on the southbound Drive Road.

The impact was significantly strong, resulting in the driver of the passenger vehicle being killed. The deceased was identified as Rocha-Diaz in a later report by Bakersfield Now.

First responders reportedly found another occupant in the passenger vehicle. The person, who appeared to be in his 20s, was briefly extricated then rushed to Kern Medical Center due to the severity of his injuries.

Delano Fatal Accident, Wednesday

The 35-year-old truck driver was also injured in the crash. Officials said he was transported via land ambulance to Delano Regional Medical Center with minor injuries.

No updates have released thus far on the condition of the injured parties.

Meanwhile, the driver of the passenger vehicle apparently came to a complete stop before it suddenly pulled, for unknown reasons, into the path of the truck. Primary reports revealed the rig was traveling at about 55 mph when the crash took place.

Further investigation is ongoing to determine the precise circumstances that led to the collision.


We offer our condolences to the family members of the Mr. Rocha-Diaz, while our prayers remain with the injured parties in this accident.


Based on this news report, it is still unclear who is liable for causing the collision that led to one person killed, and two other parties injured. Authorities are still working on answering several questions-—was any of the drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs when the crash happened? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Was any of the drivers negligent in any other way? At this time, officials are looking into these and several other factors in order to determine what actually caused the crash.

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.

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.
