KERN COUNTY, California – At least one person suffered major injuries in a head-on crash between a gray, older model Chevrolet pickup truck and a brown sedan on the westbound lanes of State Route 119 Taft Highway at Tupman Road, according to a dispatch report issued by the California Highway Patrol.
The crash, which took place just before 7 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 31, closed down the roadway in both directions at 7:03 a.m. Emergency workers responding to the scene of the crash called for a medical evacuation of at least one victim with major injuries.
The car accident was located just a few miles south east of Elk Hills Buttonwillow Airport and a few miles west of the city of Bakersfield.
“Motorists involved in head-on crashes may sustain serious injuries as a result and may need considerable medical attention after a crash,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, a personal injury lawyer serving clients throughout Southern California.
Most victims of car accidents expect their insurance company will take care of their injuries after a crash, but later they find that the insurance adjuster will minimize required medical care and short-change their compensation. There is no cost to contact a personal injury attorney to determine if you have a case against another driver and ensure that you get the treatment required to get your life back on track.
A personal injury attorney will not get paid unless your case is settled in your favor.
