Leslie Ochoa Dies Following Bakersfield Accident on East Panama Road

BAKERSFIELD, CA (September 13, 2022) – Saturday night, Leslie Ochoa, 17, died in a crash on East Panama Road and Mod Way.

The fatal accident happened at about 10:30 p.m. on East Panama Road, east of Mod Way.

According to reports, a 17-year-old boy drove a black 2021 Polaris RZR off-road vehicle westbound within a dirt field.

Then, the driver approached a concrete culvert while driving at an unsafe speed. Then, the front of the Polaris struck the edge of the culvert.

As a result, the driver and two other female passengers, sustained major injuries. Meanwhile, another passenger, a 13-year-old girl sustained moderate injuries.

They were transported to Kern Medical in Bakersfield for medical treatment, with 17-year-old Ochoa later dying at Kern Medical.

Afterward, CHP arrested the teen driver, and they also confirmed that alcohol played a role in this crash.

Due to the limited information available, the authorities continued to investigate the crash. Furthermore, they urged anyone with any information regarding this crash to contact the CHP Bakersfield Area Office at (661) 396-6600.
