Hwy 99 open after crashes at Panama Ln & Taft Hwy

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - All lanes are now open following two crashes that reportedly shut down southbound Highway 99 during the morning commute.

California Highway Patrol officers reported two crashes on Highway 99 were blocking all southbound lanes Monday morning during the commute. The first was reported at Panama Lane about 6:15 a.m. and the next came just minutes late down at Taft Hwy.

Our 23ABC Photographer Geoff Burres drove to the scene and reported the opposite, saying all lanes were open and moving smoothly. CHP officials then confirmed at 7:30 a.m. that all lanes were indeed open.
