Accidents Involving Overturned Vehicles on Hwy 178 In Bakersfield CA

Travel across Bakersfield, even outside of the rush hours, can be dangerous for motorists. On busy highways, it only takes one driver not paying attention to the path of his or her vehicle to cause a chain-reaction accident that draws in multiple vehicles.

When a vehicle is forced over on its side after an impact, the resulting injuries could be that much more devastating. Passengers in rolling vehicles can experience trauma from all sides. These frightening accidents can result in severe injuries and, in the worst cases, put lives at extreme risk.

Victim Killed in Rollover Accident in Bakersfield

One person was tragically killed after a collision involving multiple vehicles just east of downtown Bakersfield Wednesday afternoon. KGET-TV reports the accident occurred just before 3 p.m. along Highway 178 at Union Avenue on December 8, 2021.

The California Highway Patrol says the crash involved at least two vehicles in the westbound lanes of the highway. One of the vehicles was left overturned.

Officials on the scene said that at least one person had been killed in the accident. There’s no word on if there were other injuries involved in the collision. The California Highway Patrol continues to investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident.

Earning Financial Help for Victims and Families After a Bakersfield Accident

Families who have had a loved one taken from them in a tragic accident will face emotional trauma and be subjected to unfair expenses. The expense of a burial service and the costs of emergency response comes due in a matter of weeks. This is also the period when close relatives will miss the guidance and financial support the deceased had always provided.

A wrongful death claim filed against an at-fault driver’s car insurance provider strongly requests financial assistance with these expenses. The civil claim can be filed by a spouse or domestic partner, or children of the victim to recover only what’s fair to protect the family financially now and in the years ahead.

For surviving victims, a claim for damages is the best way to ensure every cost of recovery gets paid for. This civil claim seeks to earn an insurance settlement to pay all medical expenses and can also be counted on to support victims as they remain out of work and miss valuable paychecks.
