Accident in Bakersfield

The accident occurred at a critical moment in traffic, around 7 p.m., when the two vehicles involved were engaged in a reckless act of racing at the intersection of Old River Road and White Lane. While the white Camaro abruptly ended its race by colliding with several vehicles waiting at a red light, the driver of the black Camaro opted for a risky evasion, driving over the raised median of the road before fleeing eastbound on White Lane. The scene was chaotic, with stunned witnesses describing the black vehicle possibly sustaining damage to the front or undercarriage as it made its escape. Meanwhile, three adults and one minor, completely unaware of the illegal competition, suffered minor injuries as a result of the collision at the intersection. Chaos and confusion reigned as emergency services attended to the injured, transporting them to ambulances for treatment. Despite the seriousness of the incident, the driver of the white Camaro, a 19-year-old identified as Meylin Rosi Barrera, chose to remain at the scene of the accident and cooperate with the police investigation. However, his cooperation did not prevent legal consequences. After receiving medical treatment at the hospital, he was arrested and taken to Lerdo Jail for his involvement in the illegal race, reckless driving, and endangerment of a minor. Meanwhile, the search for the fugitive driver of the black Camaro continues, with the Bakersfield police seeking the public's assistance in obtaining relevant information about the incident. The affected area, the 3200 block of Old River Road, is known to be a high-traffic thoroughfare with three lanes in each direction and a speed limit of 55 miles per hour. The Bakersfield community eagerly awaits the outcome of the ongoing investigation, while reflecting on the dangers of illegal racing on the city streets and the devastating consequences that can result from such reckless actions.
