Wrong-Way Driver Manuel Gutierrez Kills Woman in Tehachapi Crash

TEHACHAPI, CA (June 10, 2021) – Authorities detained Manuel Gutierrez after a fatal wrong-way crash on Highway 58 near Tehachapi.

The California Highway Patrol said the Upland man  killed one person and injured another in a wreck on Sunday.

The incident began when Manuel Gutierrez continued without stopping and tried to run over an officer in Barstow. The officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop on his blue 1999 Chevy Tahoe.

Manuel Gutierrez fled the Barstow area and drove through Tehachapi. He exited Highway 58 at Tehachapi Boulevard and went down several surface streets.

The man re-entered Highway 58 at Highway 202, traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes. At the same time, a 2010 Nissan Murano was going east.

Sheree Fishgold, 62, Victim in Head-On Crash

CHP said he then slammed head-on into the Nissan east of Broome Road. The Bakersfield Now and Kern Golden Empire wrote that the wreck took place on June 6 at around 10:23 p.m.

Firefighters along with the paramedics arrived at the scene and confirmed that the passenger of the Murano died as a result of the collision.

The coroner’s office named the victim as 62-year-old Tehachapi resident Sheree Lee Fishgold. Both Manuel Gutierrez  and the driver of the Nissan sustained major injuries following the crash.

Medical personnel rushed them to hospitals for treatment. CHP soon arrested Gutierrez at the Kern Medical and booked him into the Kern County Jail.

The Tehachapi crash is still under investigation.
