2 Dead in Bakersfield Multi-Vehicle Accident
BAKERSFIELD, CA (November 4, 2019) – Two people died in a multi-vehicle accident on Highway 99 on November 1.
According to the CHP, a 62-year-old Delano resident and a 75-year-old Lemoore resident died after their 2010 Dodge Ram got pinned between two semis on southbound Highway 99 near Rosedale Highway.
Kathy McNutt and Harold Goldman died at the scene and there is a GoFundMe page set up for funeral donations.
The incident shut down southbound Highway 99 for around seven hours. The CHP report revealed that around 12:26 p.m., a semi driver from New York drove south on Highway 99 south of Rosedale Highway. However, he couldn’t stop in time for slowing traffic ahead. The semi then rear-ended the pickup and pushed it forward until it crashed with another semi’s rear. As a result, the two occupants of the pickup, Kathy McNutt and Harold Goldman, both died at the scene.
Meanwhile, the semi drivers didn’t suffer any injury. Authorities also ruled out drugs or alcohol as a factor in the collision.
The crash remains under investigation.
