KERN COUNTY, (Dec. 19, 2023) — Two people were critically injured Monday morning in a crash between a car and a bus on the Interstate 5 Freeway near Lebec Road in Kern County.

The collision occurred at around 6:53 a.m. on Dec. 18th, according to the California Highway Patrol.

CHP officials reported the car reportedly collided with the bus before it went off the freeway and hit a guardrail, a fence and a pillar supporting a bridge.

Paramedics responded and requested an air ambulance to transport two people from the car to a trauma center for treatment of major injuries. Authorities say the man who was driving the car had facial injuries and his female passenger had other severe injuries.
