CHP: Speed was factor in Round Mountain Road crash injuring 2 people


CHP says speed was a factor in a major injury crash involving a 17 year old boy, hospitalizing him and another driver in Northeast Bakersfield Wednesday night.

The crash happened at around 8:30 p.m. on Round Mountain Road near Adolphus Avenue.

CHP said a 17 year old in a Honda Civic was going too fast through a corner on Round Mountain Road. CHP says he lost control heading westbound and veered into oncoming traffic colliding with a Toyota pick-up truck.

CHP said the driver of the pick-up truck tried to avoid the collision but couldn’t stop in time.

Both were taken to Kern Medical. The 17-year-old suffered major injuries, while the driver of the pick-up truck driver suffered minor to moderate injuries, according to CHP Sgt. Scott Finney.

Finney said drugs and alcohol did not appear to be factors in the crash.
