Bakersfield Fatal Motorcycle Accident

The man suffered fatal injuries following the collision. His name has not been yet released pending notification of next of kin.

Meanwhile, CHP affirmed that the woman did not stop and fled the scene. She was later found and taken into custody. Drugs and alcohol appeared to have played a role in the incident which remains under investigation.

We offer our prayers and most heartfelt condolences to the family members and friends of the man during such a difficult time. We hope they will be brought peace and comfort in time.

In this case, the driver will be held fully responsible for causing the tragic accident. It is expected for any motorist to stop and remain at the scene after being involved in a crash. Regardless of her reasons, fleeing the area is a serious crime and punishable by law, especially if the collision killed another individual.

Aside from leaving the area, the suspect is also accused of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time. The family of the motorcyclist has then the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the driver who has evidently neglected the safety of others on the road. Our staff believes that the families of wrongful death victims need a professional representative in court who will guide them every step of the way and fight aggressively for their legal rights.
