UPDATE: Liseth Miranda, 23, Killed in Multi-vehicle Crash at Ashe, Harris Rd in Bakersfield

Bakersfield, CA – According to KBAK, 23-year-old Liseth Miranda of Bakersfield has been identified as the victim of a fatal multi-vehicle collision in Bakersfield, according to the Kern County Coroner’s Office. The crash occurred on Wednesday, March 27, 2024, around 4:54 PM.

Authorities from the Bakersfield Police Department responded to reports of a collision involving three vehicles at the intersection of Ashe Road and Harris Road. Initial investigations suggest that a male driver operating a Volkswagen was traveling westbound along the 6300 block of Harris Road when, under circumstances yet to be determined, he crossed into the eastbound lanes and collided with a red Honda and a black Mini Cooper.

The impact of the crash resulted in severe injuries to Miranda, who was rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment. Despite medical efforts, Miranda succumbed to her injuries, marking a tragic loss for her family and friends.

Fortunately, the other individuals involved in the collision sustained minor injuries. The driver of the Volkswagen remained at the scene and cooperated fully with law enforcement officials. Investigations by the Bakersfield Police Department have ruled out impairment as a contributing factor to the crash.

In the wake of this devastating event, a GoFundMe campaign has been launched in memory of Liseth Miranda. Described as someone who brought joy to every gathering, Miranda’s vibrant spirit and love for life are remembered fondly by those who knew her.

The Kern County Coroner’s Office and local law enforcement continue to investigate the circumstances leading up to the fatal collision on Harris Road, aiming to provide answers and closure to the affected families.

Wrongful Death Claims

While no amount of money can bring back those we love who lose their lives in a vehicular accident, their death can heap unexpected costs onto the families who mourn them. Medical bills, burial costs, and the loss of income to support any dependents of the deceased can heap insult on top of the injury of their untimely passing.

To cover these costs, many turn toward crowd-sourced donations, unaware that compensation may be available to them through a Wrongful Death Claim filed with the help of a personal injury attorney. A Wrongful Death Claim does not require that criminal files be charged in the wake of a vehicular accident nor that a conviction be reached if they are. A successful Wrongful Death Claim can be made even if only partial liability can be attributed to an outside party.

A knowledgeable personal injury attorney can help grieving families assess their options, gather evidence regarding their loved one’s tragic death, and then negotiate with insurance companies to secure proper compensation for their loss.
