Fatal Car Accident in Bakersfield Kills Man

Dump Truck Crash Results in 1 Death 

A pickup truck and dump truck collided on Monday morning resulting in the death of one unidentified man. 

The accident occurred on November 29th around 9:14 a.m. on Taft Highway. 

According to reports, the 38-year-old man was driving his pickup westbound prior to crossing into the eastbound lane. 

As a result, he hit an oncoming dump truck head-on. 

Unfortunately, the driver of the pickup truck died at the scene. 

Additionally, the other involved driver sustained minor injuries, however he was not treated. 

It is a possibility that the driver of the pickup was distracted by his phone at the time of the crash. 

An active investigation is underway to determine liability. 

In 2020, studies showed that the state of California reported 3,723 motor-vehicle deaths which was an increase from 2019. 

In the U.S. one’s odds of dying in a car accident is around 1 in 107. 

Always make sure to wear a seatbelt, obey traffic laws, and avoid distractions while driving.
