Bakersfield, CA – On the morning of Wednesday, February 14, 2024, a multi-vehicle collision caused by a pickup truck driver running a red light left one victim hospitalized, according to KGET.

Immediately preceding the crash, police received calls regarding a reckless driver in a Chevrolet pickup truck in the area. At 10:30 AM, before the police arrived, the driver caused the accident at the intersection of California and Chester Avenues by running a red light and crashing into three other vehicles.

One of the other drivers was injured and sent to a local hospital for treatment. Authorities arrested the Chevrolet driver. Investigators believe driver intoxication may have been a factor.

Personal Injury Claims

When the actions of reckless drivers lead to injuries for others, the cost of caring for those injuries should not fall upon their victims. Filing a claim with the insurance provider of the at-fault driver can offer compensation to help cover medical bills and time taken off of work to recover from injuries.

However, insurance companies always have it in their interests to deny or minimize all claims they receive, which is why the help of a knowledgeable personal injury attorney can make all the difference.
