Two Injured in Solo-Car Crash on Eastbound 119 Freeway near Tupman Road

 
TAFT, CA (April 10, 2018) – A man and woman were injured in a single-vehicle collision on the eastbound Highway 119, late Tuesday afternoon.
 
Around 4:30 PM, 54-Year-old Norman Byrd was traveling eastbound in a 2007 Nissan Altima when he hit a bump, just west of Tupman Road. He lost control of the car and drove off the road, where he struck an embankment.
 
Byrd complained of back pain and was transported to the Kern Medical Center.
