BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - One person has been killed and several others injured in a late night head-on crash in Southeast Bakersfield.
It happened at 10:47 p.m. Wednesday in the 400 block of E. Panama Lane, near the intersection of S. Oswell Street.
Bakersfield Police investigators say the driver of a Lincoln Navigator was traveling westbound on E. Panama Lane and sideswiped another car. The Lincoln Navigator then drifted into the eastbound lane and slammed head-on into a Chevy Tahoe.
17-year-old Breanna Mendoza, a passenger in the Tahoe, sustained major injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Tahoe and the driver of the Navigator both suffered minor to moderate injuries and were taken to local hospitals.
It doesn't appear alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash.
Both lanes of E. Panama Lane are open again.
