BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — The Bakersfield Police Department is asking for the community’s help in identifying a man wanted in connection with an injury hit-and-run collision last month.

The department said the collision occurred on May 11 at around 4:43 p.m. in the area of S. Union Avenue and S. Chester Avenue. A motorhome that a box truck was towing broke free and collided with a vehicle.

The victim suffered minor injuries and was taken to an area hospital for treatment, BPD said.

The suspect is described as being a white man in his 20s or 30s, medium build, dark medium-length hair with a mustache and beard.
