A Bakersfield man was killed in a four-vehicle collision on Highway 58 east of Highway 99 Sunday evening.
The man, whose name has not yet been released, suffered fatal injuries after his Ford collided with the left rear of another vehicle and entered another lane, where it was struck by a third vehicle, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The impact pushed the Ford back into its initial lane where it slammed into the rear of a fourth vehicle, officers said. The crash occurred in the westbound lanes around 6:30 p.m.
Two passengers inside the fourth vehicle were taken to Kern Medical Center with a complaint of pain, according to the CHP.
The crash doesn't appear to involve drugs or alcohol, officers said. An investigation is ongoing.
