8th Street Multi-Vehicle Accident Seriously Hurt Male Pedestrian [Bakersfield, CA]

Man Injured in 3-Vehicle DUI Collision in Central Bakersfield

Bakersfield, CA (December 17, 2022) On Friday morning, a multi-vehicle accident on 8th Street in central Bakersfield seriously injured a man.

The Bakersfield Police Department says that the 3-vehicle collision happened at about 9:50 a.m. in the 1500 block of 8th Street.

Reports say that a westbound pickup truck swerved oncoming traffic and struck another vehicle. Inadvertently a man was washing the vehicle.

Officials say that they found the man pinned between 2 vehicles. Moreover, the man sustained major injuries. Paramedics rushed the victim to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Meanwhile, the impact of the collision pushed both vehicles to a third one.

Furthermore, authorities suspected that the pickup driving is driving impaired. Police say that once cleared they will book the man into Kern County Jail on suspicion of DUI charges.

BPD is investigating the 3-vehicle DUI collision.

Truth be told, in today’s day and age, there is hardly an excuse for driving under the influence. There are plenty of alternatives, such as using a rideshare app, or making a non-drinking friend a designated driver.

A common myth is that hot coffee or a cold shower can help someone sober up, especially if they need to drive home. However, according to MADD, time is the only factor in helping a person sober up, since alcohol is a water soluble drug. In order for your body to no longer be inebriated, your body needs time to flush out those toxins.
