Bakersfield, CA – 1 Killed, 2 Injured in DUI Crash

Bakersfield, CA (November 13, 2018) – A car accident on Panama Lane near Highway 99 northbound involving a drunk driver left two men injured and one dead on Monday night.

Cristian Avalos, 24, was driving east on Panama Lane when his vehicle turned into the northbound off-ramp for Highway 99. He then crashed into a sedan with two occupants. The crash resulted in the death of the passenger that was riding with Avalos. Avalos himself only sustained a few minor injuries and was arrested the very next day on charges of drunk driving and murder.

No names or any other information on the other people involved in the accident have been released at this time. The investigation is still ongoing.

Drunk Driving in California

At this time we would like to extend our sincerest condolences to the family and friends of the one known victim of this terrible car accident. We know this is a heartbreaking time for everyone involved.  

Those who choose to drink and then get behind the wheel of a car represent a very serious threat to public safety. This is especially true among the age group of 18 to 24-year-olds for whom the leading cause of death is impaired driving on California roadways. Car accident fatalities where a blood alcohol level greater than .08% was a factor increased by 16.3% from 2015 to 2016.

If you or someone that you care for has been injured in a car accident where a drunk driver was at fault then the law states that you are entitled to be reimbursed for certain damages. Those damages include medical bills, therapy bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering just to name a few.
