Woman Badly Injured; Flown to Hospital

McFARLAND (June 15, 2017)- According to the Kern Golden Empire, a major injury crash was reported Thursday morning at the intersection of Pond and Melchar roads.

Authorities were notified of the accident involving a semi-truck and a white SUV at precisely 9:08 a.m.

Details regarding the cause of the collision are unclear at this time, however, the semi-truck which was roughly 54 feet in length caused serious injuries to the woman who had been driving the white SUV. She was trapped inside and eventually extricated by fire fighter personnel.

A medical air flight helicopter landed at the scene to rush the unidentified woman to Kern Medical Center where she was said to have been in critical condition.

The report did not indicate that the semi-truck driver was hurt as he was seen walking around following the collision.

Golden Empire Towing arrived at the scene to tow away the SUV which incurred major damage.

No further information has been disclosed while CHP proceeds on with their investigation.


Based on this news report,  there are still several unanswered questions here. Which driver had the right of way? Was either driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Was either driver negligent in any other way? In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, injured accident victim are subject to a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault parties seeking compensation for damages including medical expenses, funeral costs, lost future income, and pain and suffering.

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.
