Interstate 5 provides a heavily-used route spanning the entire state. It’s also one of the most dangerous stretches for motorists in California.
Fast-moving traffic zooms through Kern County and not every driver stays focused on the multiple lanes in front of them. Motorists can take a glance at a text or be distracted by a conversation with a passenger and not realize where their vehicle is heading.
Drivers could fail to slow down for stopped traffic ahead, or miss noticing their vehicles are traveling into another vehicle’s lane. These lapses in attention can lead to major collisions and cause serious injuries.

One person suffered a head injury and a helicopter was requested for transport to the hospital. The person’s condition wasn’t released. It is not known if other drivers or passengers received injuries.
California Highway Patrol investigators continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident.
Seeking Help for Interstate 5 Accident Victims
After a major interstate accident, victims can be left to recover from severe injuries. The last thing they need or their families need is a stack of bills left unpaid. These financial worries serve to leave victims unable to focus on healing.
When a driver’s careless mistake is to blame, the driver’s insurance company should be first in line to help victims pay for the best care available. A claim for damages filed against the insurance company also asks for financial support while the victim is unable to work while receiving medical care. A personal injury attorney makes sure all hardships victims and their families face are factored into the amount of compensation insurance adjusters must provide.
