Fatal Crash On Highway 46

One person is dead and another is in critical condition after a high-speed ride ended in a crash.

It was a fatal conclusion to the long holiday weekend as the California Highway Patrol worked the scene of a deadly accident on Hwy 46 just east of Interstate 5.

Officials said the crash happened around 2:15 a.m. Monday.

The CHP said the high-speed crash involved a single car headed westbound when the driver lost control, hit a guardrail, and flipped more than one hundred feet off the roadway.

One unrestrained person was ejected another 70 feet and died at the scene, the CHP said.

Another person was airlifted to Kern Medical Center in critical condition.

Officials said alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
