Bakersfield, California (January 21, 2020) – Four teens sustained serious injuries in a traffic accident that occurred on Monday morning in Bakersfield.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the accident happened on Highway 178 near Union Avenue.

The authorities said four teenagers were riding in a 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt that was traveling westbound when a Honda sedan sideswiped their car.

The Honda was reportedly attempting to change lanes when the collision occurred.

As per the CHP report, the impact of the collision pushed the Chevrolet off the roadway, where it crashed into a tree.

The Honda driver fled the scene immediately after the crash.

Four teens suffered major injuries and were rushed to Kern Medical Hospital for treatment.

The CHP said a teenage girl was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.

No further information about the accident was provided.

An investigation into the accident is underway.

Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
