Kern Co, CA (August 13, 2020) – At least one victim was killed on the afternoon of Thursday, August 13th in a rollover accident in which a pick-up truck was involved along State Route Highway 58 in the unincorporated community of Mojave.

The accident was brought to the attention of officers from the California Highway Patrol at around 1:00 p.m. near the off-ramp for Exit 172 when the driver of a grey or white Chevrolet pick-up truck rolled over in front of the highway exit. 

Before the actual crash took place, other drivers in the area had notified the California Highway Patrol of a driver whom they had witnessed swerving in and out of surrounding traffic and almost crashing into three additional vehicles.

It is unclear at this time exactly how many people were inside of the pick-up, but a medical helicopter was seen at the scene of the crash and the Kern County Fire Department also responded. 

At least one victim was pronounced dead after the accident, but there is no additional information currently available as cause and liability in this accident are still under professional inquiry by crash investigators from the California Highway Patrol.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
