Bakersfield, CA – CHP investigates possible DUI after a chase in northwest Bakersfield

Torem & Associates

BAKERSFIELD, CA – Police are investigating a possible DUI after a police chase involving a commercial truck on Friday in northwest Bakersfield.

Sheriff’s deputies received reports of a commercial truck pulling a cement mixer erratically in the area of Hageman Road and Renfro Road. Concrete bags were constantly thrown into the road by the driver. Police do not know whether the vehicle was stolen.

The truck was located at 7th Standard Road and Santa Fey Way, but the driver led deputies on a chase back into town near Jewetta Avenue and Hageman Road.

The driver tried to ram an officer on a motorcycle during the chase, but the officer was able to avoid a collision. According to CHP, the driver made a last-ditch attempt to cross a railroad track near Jewetta Avenue and Rosedale Highway, but the truck got stuck on the tracks.

After exiting the vehicle, the driver tried to run westbound along Rosedale Highway. Authorities said the suspects entered a few backyards before being taken into custody without incident at Mockingbird Court and Lone Oak Drive.

The incident did not result in any injuries.

Sergeant Richard Pierce attributes the arrest to community tips that helped them locate the suspect and the Bakersfield Police Department’s assistance in securing the perimeter.

The lives of those victimized in motor vehicle accidents can be impacted in many devastating ways. When victims suffer life-threatening injuries and require emergency transportation to area hospitals, this is especially true. Unfortunately, thousands of people across the state of California sustain life-altering injuries each year due to traffic collisions. If you reside in the Stockton area, you’re probably familiar with the busy roads and highways. 

Alarmingly, over 90% of all auto accidents in the United States are the result of some form of driver negligence. When drivers choose to act recklessly by speeding, ignoring traffic signals, and allowing themselves to become distracted from the road, they risk their own lives and the lives of those around them. Depending on the circumstances of an accident, injured victims may have helpful legal options available to them to help them recover in more ways than one.
