Bakersfield, CA (September 3, 2021) – On the morning of Wednesday, September 1st, two people were killed in a fatal head-on crash at an intersection in Bakersfield. The incident was reported to authorities in the area just before 7:00 a.m. 

According to reports, the wreck happened on Road 192 near Avenue 104 between two vehicles southwest of Porterville. A 25-year-old man and a 78-year-old man both lost their lives in the wreck. 

Sources indicate that the accident occurred when both victims were riding in a Chevy Cavalier headed north on 192. Their vehicle, for unknown reasons, entered the southbound lanes and collided with a Chevy Silverado. 

Both men present in the Cavalier lost their lives at the scene. Paramedics transported the driver of the second vehicle to Kaweah Delta Medical Center in Visalia in order to be treated for minor injuries. Those involved have not been identified at this time. 

Authorities continue to investigate the details of the collision. Nothing further has been reported at this time. 

Our thoughts are with everyone involved. We would like to offer our sincere sympathies to the families of the deceased victims at this time. 

Fatal Traffic Accidents in Bakersfield

Victims and their family members may suffer lasting impacts from vehicle collisions. More than 450,000 traffic accidents occur in the Golden State each year. Although we hope that everyone walks away from a crash scene unscathed, this is not often the case. Vehicle collisions throughout California end the lives of over 3,200 people each year, and more than 270,000 sustain injuries. 

Unfortunately, a large percentage of these collisions are the result of driver negligence. Some forms of driver negligence include reckless driving, speeding, impaired driving, fatigued driving, and more. Driver negligence accounts for more than 94% of all car crashes in the United States every year.
