Bakersfield, CA – Ten Individuals Injured in Highway 99 Accident

highway 99 accidentBakersfield, CA (October 5, 2018) – In Bakersfield, ten people were injured in a Highway 99 accident that took place on Thursday morning, October 4. Three of the injured victims have since been identified as 37-year-old Juan Sosa, 35-year-old Alfredo Sanchez and 43-year-old Maria Armas. All three were from Bakersfield.

Police said that the accident took place when a female pedestrian was walking north on the highway when 29-year-old Oscar Dia was driving a Dodge Ram in the second lane. The woman suddenly walked into the path of the truck, which caused the driver to swerve. A chain reaction crash happened as a result.

A total of ten people were injured, some of which were serious. The pedestrian was among the people who received injuries. The names and conditions of those involved have, for the most part, not yet been released. Police continue to investigate.

Bakersfield Chain-Reaction Crash 

We want to extend our condolences to those involved in this serious crash and hope that they will be able to recover at this time. It is difficult to be involved in an accident and wonder how you will receive the compensation you deserve.

Chain-reaction crashes happen for many reasons on our roadways. In some cases, pedestrians inadvertently cause accidents through their actions because they might not always be looking out for vehicles on our roadways. Furthermore, sometimes vehicle drivers are not looking out for the well-being of pedestrians on our roadways.

An investigation will lead into determining who is responsible for a serious accident involving multiple people. One of the issues with these accidents is that liability is not always as clear as it seems. People might point the finger at one another in the event of an accident, which means that you will need to gather evidence.

At the Los Angeles Injury Group, we want to help you receive the compensation you deserve in the midst of your accident. Call us today to find out how we can help you at 310-954-7248.
