Arnold Hardimon Dies in Bakersfield Car Accident on Highway 99
Grapevine, CA (August 24, 2020) – On Saturday, 54-year-old Arnold Hardimon died, while a woman sustained injuries in a vehicle crash on Highway 99.
The California Highway Patrol said they received a call around 11 p.m. about a crash involving a 2007 Mercedes CLK and a tractor-trailer on southbound Highway 99 south of Highway 166.
When they arrived at the scene, a Bakersfield resident, Arnold Hardimon, was pronounced dead. While rescuers rushed a 42-year-old woman to Kern Medical for treatment.
The CHP said that the Mercedes driver, who was without a seatbelt, pulled onto the right shoulder on southbound Highway 99. Then, it abruptly accelerated to the left and into the direction of the tractor-trailer.
The Mercedes stopped in the center median while the tractor-trailer stopped in two of the southbound lanes.
Furthermore, authorities closed all lanes on southbound Highway 99 at around 11:25 PM. They were reopened at around 3:30 AM.
The CHP said alcohol appears to have been a factor in the crash.
