Five Hospitalized after Multi-Vehicle Crash on Fairfax Road in Bakersfield

 
Bakersfield, CA (September 12, 2020) – Friday evening, five individuals sustained injuries after a multi-vehicle crash at Fairfax Road and College Avenue.
 
The incident happened at 6:52 p.m. on September 11.
 
Authorities said a car was driving southbound on Fairfax Road, just north of College Avenue when for an unknown reason veered into oncoming traffic in the opposite lane.
 
The vehicle then collided with two other cars. As a result, there were five injured people, and all were occupants in the three vehicles.
 
Emergency crews transported them to a hospital.
 
Moreover, the person that was ejected also sustained injuries. All five are now in stable condition.
 
The intersection at Fairfax Road and College Avenue will be closed until 9 p.m. approximately.
 
Crash rates in California continue to increase, rather than decrease, despite the additional safety features on newer vehicle models. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), two out of three motorists will be involved in an injury accident during their life. Though we don’t want this to happen, it is still vital to know when to proceed if you or a family member is involved in a similar car accident.

It is also recommended to use a ride share app if you can’t safely operate a vehicle to avoid this kind of accident.

What to do after an Auto Accident

  • Before anything else, seek medical attention if you have been hurt.
  • Get to a safe place to prevent further damage or injury.
  • Collect as much information as possible: insurance and contact information of people involved in the accident, pictures/videos of vehicles involved, etc.
  • File a police report or incident report by calling 911.
  • Hire an experienced personal injury attorney from Sweet Lawyers.
  • The most valuable step you can take in response to a vehicle crash is hiring a personal injury attorney.
