BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A vehicle has crashed into a tree in the 4300 block of California Avenue between Chester Lane and Easton Drive.
The crash that happened around 1:30 p.m. had that portion of California Avenue blocked off between Chester Lane and Mervyns Place. The road has since been reopened.
Sergeant Joe Grubbs said after talking to witnesses they discovered 47-year-old Kimberly Love was driving a Ford Explorer westbound on California Avenue and going in excess of 70 miles per hour. Sgt. Grubbs said she was weaving in and out of traffic when she tried making a lane change and lost control, hit a curb and then hit a tree before being ejected from the car.
Sgt. Grubbs said Love was not wearing a seatbelt.
She is currently at Kern Medical Center with major injuries but Sgt. Grubbs said her injuries do not appear to be life threatening at this time.
Sgt. Grubbs said drugs and alcohol have not been ruled out as a factor in the collision at this time.
Anyone with information regarding this crash is asked to call the Bakersfield Police Department at (661) 327-7111.
