Bakersfield, CA – A serious rollover crash on Interstate 5 near Buttonwillow Drive left at least one person with significant injuries on the morning of Friday, March 29, 2024, according to KGET.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) says that the crash was first reported at approximately 10:12 AM in the southbound lanes near the Buttonwillow Drive offramp. A sedan involved in the crash rolled over and came to rest off the roadway, resulting in one individual being ejected from the vehicle and sustaining a head injury.

Emergency responders, including a medical helicopter, quickly arrived at the scene to provide immediate assistance. The injured individual was airlifted to a nearby hospital for urgent medical treatment.

At this time, the cause of the crash and the full extent of injuries sustained by those involved remain unknown. Investigations into the incident are ongoing, with authorities working diligently to determine the factors contributing to the rollover crash and assess the severity of injuries incurred.

Liability in Solo-Vehicle Collisions

Those who might find themselves in an accident like the one described above should be aware that some portion of liability for a solo-vehicle crash may be found to belong to circumstances outside the driver’s control such as irresponsible driving by other vehicles in the area or even unsafe roadway conditions for which local government bears responsibility. Those responsible for these outside factors may owe compensation to anyone injured in such a crash.

Personal Injury Claims

After a vehicular accident, in addition to emotional distress, victims and their families can be overwhelmed with the sudden financial burdens of medical bills, loss of income due to recovery time, and, in unfortunate circumstances, burial fees.

The responsibility for these costs should fall upon those responsible for causing these injuries and their insurance provider. However, insurance companies will try to minimize the compensation for any claim they cannot deny, which is why having the help of a skilled personal injury attorney can prove crucial in ensuring justice for victims of vehicular accidents.
