BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A pedestrian suffered serious injures following an early morning crash in southwest Bakersfield.
The accident happened at 4:45 a.m. Wednesday on Belle Terrace, just west of the intersection of Stine Road.
Bakersfield Police officials tell 23ABC that the victim, whose identity hasn't been released, darted across Belle Terrace directly in front of a Toyota Corolla. The driver of the Corolla wasn't able to stop in time and slammed into the victim, leaving a large hole in the car's windshield.
The victim suffered major injuries and was taken to a Bakersfield-area hospital for treatment.
Belle Terrace is currently closed between Stine Road and McDonald Way and is expected to reopen late Wednesday morning.
