A Mojave Man Dies in a Head-on Collision with a Semi-truck South of Dawn Road, Bakersfield California

Bakersfield, Calif. — A man was killed in a head-on crash with a 2013 Kenworth tractor-trailer.

According to reports, the man was driving a 2017 Ram pickup truck southbound on Frontage Road, and the semi-truck was traveling northbound on the same road when the two vehicles approached each other and collided head-on.

The pickup truck driver died from his injuries at Antelope Valley Hospital.

No further details have been released.

Thoughts on head-on collisions

What caused this tragic crash? There are many unanswered questions. A thorough investigation can help determine what led to this collision and whether any wrongdoing occurred. Loss of life on our roadways cannot be tolerated, and all steps should be taken to ensure such an accident does not happen again. The family deserves to know if any wrongdoing on the part of the trucker caused this crash, and if so, a right to hold the wrongdoer accountable.

May the facts come to light soon.
