Kern County coroner has identified the woman killed in a five-car collision in Northwest Bakersfield on Monday night.
Betty Jean Hollins, 70, was driving eastbound on Rosedale Highway when her SUV was rear-ended.
Hollins was pronounced dead on scene, according to officials. Her passenger, a juvenile, sustained minor injuries.
Police were called to a report of the crash at Coffee Road and Rosedale Highway. The collision was first reported at around 8:10 p.m.
An adult male driving a black Honda sedan was traveling eastbound when he struck Hollins’ car. The force of this impact caused a chain reaction collision involving the three additional vehicles.
