Tow Truck Rollover Accident Kills 1 in Bakersfield on Caliente Bodfish Road

Bakersfield, CA (September 15, 2023) – A tragic accident unfolded on Caliente Bodfish Road in Kern River Valley, resulting in the loss of a driver’s life in a tow truck rollover incident.

Kensworth Flat Bed Tow Truck Carrying Mazda Loses Control and Rolls Over Killing Driver

According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), the fatal accident occurred shortly before 2:30 p.m. this past Monday. The incident involved a flatbed tow truck carrying a Mazda vehicle on its platform, and for reasons yet unknown, the 68-year-old male driver lost control of the vehicle. This loss of control prevented the driver from navigating the roadway, ultimately leading to the overturning of the Kenworth tow truck.

The violent rollover caused the Mazda, which was occupied by three passengers, to be ejected from the flatbed. Upon receiving reports of the accident, CHP officers swiftly responded to the scene. Tragically, they discovered the tow truck’s operator pinned inside the vehicle, and he was pronounced deceased at the scene.

3 Adult Passengers Inside Mazda Miraculously Survived The Crash

Fortunately, the three adult passengers in the Mazda survived the harrowing crash. Paramedics attended to them and transported them to Kern Medical for the treatment of minor injuries.

While authorities do not suspect impairment played a role in the tragic accident, a comprehensive investigation is now underway to uncover further details regarding the circumstances that led to this devastating incident.
