Bakersfield, CA – A fatal crash on the night of Saturday, June 15, 2024, resulted in the death of a 24-year-old man from Wasco, according to KBAK.

The incident occurred at approximately 9:11 PM on Highway 43, north of Wasco Avenue, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP).

The CHP reported that officers were called to the scene of a single-vehicle crash involving a Honda traveling northbound on Highway 43 at an undetermined speed. For reasons still under investigation, the vehicle veered left across the southbound lanes of traffic, leaving the main portion of the roadway. The Honda continued in a northwesterly direction before striking an almond tree in an orchard and overturning.

Sadly, the driver, identified as a 24-year-old man from Wasco, died as a result of the crash. The investigation into the factors contributing to the accident, including the possible involvement of alcohol or drugs, is ongoing.

Liability in Single-Vehicle Collisions

In certain situations, investigations may uncover that some liability for a single-vehicle collision falls on other drivers nearby or even on unsafe roadway structures. Sorting through these details to help victims and their families secure proper compensation is one of the key services a personal injury attorney offers.

After establishing liability, a personal injury attorney can negotiate with insurance companies on the victim’s behalf. Insurance companies invariably aim to minimize payouts for claims they cannot deny, making legal representation crucial for obtaining fair compensation.
