Arnulfo Chavez and Christopher Dismus Dead Following Bakersfield Accident
BAKERSFIELD, CA (November 4, 2020) – On Monday night, Arnulfo Chavez and Christopher Raoul Dismus died in a head-on crash on Highway 58.
The accident occurred at about 9:56 p.m. on Highway 58, east of Edison Highway.
When the CHP arrived at the scene, they located the two men with fatal injuries. Afterward, they declared them dead at the scene.
The Kern County Sheriff’s Office identified the deceased as 32-year-old Bakersfield resident Arnulfo Chavez and 34-year-old Lemoore resident Christopher Raoul Dismus.
Meanwhile, the department revealed that an Acura had traveled east on Highway 58. Then, a Ford had traveled west at a high rate of speed, approaching the wrong-way Acura.
Both vehicles didn’t take an evasive maneuver. Thus, the front of the Acura crashed with Ford’s front.

Furthermore, the authorities shut down westbound 58 from Comanche Drive to Edison Highway. The roads remained closed for around three hours for the investigation.
