Victim Identified in Fatal Car Accident on Edison Highway

BAKERSFIELD, California — The Kern County Coroner’s Office has identified the victim of a fatal car accident on Edison Highway that occurred on June 16th. The pedestrian victim has been identified as Erick Mikail Bartlett, a 26-year-old resident of Bakersfield.

According to a report from the California Highway Patrol (CHP), the incident took place on June 16, 2023, at approximately 3:32 a.m. Officers received a call regarding an accident in the area of Edison Highway, specifically at Webster Street, in East Bakersfield.

Upon arrival, officers determined that the vehicle involved in the accident had fled the scene.

Preliminary investigation reveals that Bartlett was lying in the number two lane of eastbound Edison Highway, just east of Webster Street. According to the CHP, a white Nissan Sentra was traveling eastbound on Edison Highway in the same area where Bartlett was located, at an unknown speed. The driver of the Nissan struck Bartlett and then fled the scene without rendering aid.

Due to the injuries sustained, Bartlett was transported to Kern Medical Center, where he tragically succumbed to his injuries. Subsequently, authorities located the abandoned Nissan at the intersection of Kentucky and Center Streets.

Despite efforts made, authorities were unable to locate the Nissan driver in the area.

Therefore, a plea is made to anyone who may have information about the driver or any additional details related to the accident to immediately contact CHP Bakersfield at the following phone number: (661) 396-6600.

We hope that the community’s collaboration can provide the necessary leads to solve this tragic incident and bring the responsible party for the accident and hit-and-run to justice.
