BAKERSFIELD, CA (May 13, 2020) – Tuesday afternoon, Larry Mangrobang Sr. died in a multi-vehicle accident on White Lane in southwest Bakersfield.

Witnesses later revealed that the Honda was heading east on White Lane. However, it drove through a red light as it entered the intersection on Grissom Street. As a result, the Honda crashed with the semi-truck that was turning south on Grissom Street at White Lane.
