DELANO, Calif. - A Bakersfield man is dead after crashing with four other parked vehicles in Delano.
The 47-year-old man, whose identity remains unknown at the time was traveling westbound on County Line Road approaching Driver Road on a 2013 Honda Accord.
The California Highway Patrol reports that for unknown reasons, the man "allowed his vehicle to veer from the westbound lane across the roadway and onto the south dirt shoulder" where it crashed with a total of four unattended, parked vehicles.
The man was transported to Delano Regional Medical Center where he died from his injuries.
The CHP said that they believe the driver was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the accident, which they say would have possibly limited his exposure to frontal blunt trauma. It is also unknown if alcohol was a factor in this accident.
The accident remains under investigation.
