Bakersfield, CA (August 19, 2020) – One man was killed and another badly injured during a car accident along Berkshire Road on Thursday, August 13, according to a report published by a local news source.

The Kern County Sheriff’s Office has since identified the deceased victim as 30-year-old Michael Paul Brashear.

Initial investigation tactics have shown that Brashear was driving a silver sedan, heading southwest along Berkshire Road in Bakersfield at about 2:30 p.m. As he neared the 3100 block of Berkshire Road, near the intersection of Greenland Way, his sedan and a Dodge pick-up truck collided headfirst into one another. 

As a result of the impact, Brashear sustained injuries that were classified by emergency medical personnel as life-threatening. Paramedics attending the crash site pronounced Brashear dead at the scene a short while later.

In the meantime, the driver of the pick-up truck was transported via ambulance to a local medical facility for emergency medical treatment of unspecified injuries. The identity of the injured victim has not been disclosed at this time.

Additional information concerning the accident is currently unknown. Local law enforcement officers are currently working to determine cause and liability for this accident.
