Tragic Highway 99 Accident: Bakersfield Woman Loses Her Life

A Bakersfield woman tragically lost her life in a devastating accident on Highway 99, according to a statement from the California Highway Patrol (CHP). At approximately 5:17 a.m., officers responded to a report of a pickup truck that had veered off the road, with debris scattered across the roadway. The accident occurred on northbound Highway 99, just south of Sherwood Avenue.

According to information gathered by CHP, a 23-year-old woman was behind the wheel of a 2014 Chevrolet when, inexplicably, she came to a complete stop in the second traffic lane, just south of Sherwood Avenue. What is even more perplexing is that her vehicle’s lights were off at the time, according to authorities’ report.

In a devastating turn of events, a 43-year-old woman was driving a 2019 GMC at a speed of approximately 65-70 miles per hour. Sadly, she failed to spot the stationary Chevrolet and collided violently from behind. The impact was so intense that both vehicles went off the road and onto the shoulder.

The driver of the Chevrolet tragically lost her life at the scene of the accident. It is important to note that she was not wearing her seatbelt at the time of the collision, underscoring the importance of adhering to all safety measures while driving.

As of now, it is unknown whether alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash. The investigation is still ongoing, and the CHP is committed to uncovering the truth behind this incident.
