Gary Knox Dozier Involved in Fatal Vehicle Collision on James Road [Bakersfield, CA]

Crash Near Highway 65 Kills Two Children

Bakersfield, CA (May 11, 2022) – On Tuesday, Gary Knox Dozier, 69, of Wasco, was involved in a traffic collision on James Road killing two children.

The fatal collision took place at about 3:43 p.m. between Highway 65 and Airport Road.

A 14-year-old was driving a westbound white two-door Nissan sedan with 9, 10, and 11-year-old passengers.

As the Nissan approached the bulldozer stopped on the side of James Road, the bulldozer started to move across James Road into the path of the Nissan. 

The Nissan driver attempted to avoid the bulldozer driven by Dozier by veering left but its right side collided with the bucket of the bulldozer.

Sad to say, the 10-year-old front right passenger and the 11-year-old right rear passenger, succumbed to their injuries at the scene. Officers have not yet released the name of the two deceased.

On the other hand, the paramedics rushed the driver and the 9-year-old left rear passenger to Kern Medical.

Moreover, Dozier, 69, remained on the scene and did not suffer injuries from the accident.

Officers are still investigating what caused the accident. They do not suspect alcohol or drugs as factors in the collision.

Meanwhile, please reach out to CHP at (661) 396-6600 for further details on this fatal crash.

Here is a GoFundMe link to help pay for the funeral expenses of both kids.


We at Sweet Lawyers extend our sincere condolences to the family and loved ones of the two deceased in the vehicle collision on James Road. May the bereaved find peace and strength in this time of grief.


Fatal Collisions Could Happen Anytime

Despite the additional safety features on newer vehicle models, California’s traffic collision rate increases, rather than decrease

Thus, it reflects that road accidents are a major public health threat, making them a leading cause of death for individuals ages 5-64.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says that two out of three motorists will be involved in a traffic collision during their life.

That is why it is important to know what to do if you lost a loved one in a similar incident.
