A crash at southbound Interstate 5 and Frazier Mountain Park Road on November 14, around 2:34 p.m. injured two people, causing one to be airlifted to Kern Medical Center.

A 1994 Toyota, driven by Angel Murillo, was headed southbound on I-5, just south of Frazier Mountain Park Road, when it lost power and was disabled in the middle of the freeway.

After a short time, 50-year-old Nasib Singh was driving a 2015 Volvo truck tractor and failed to see the disabled Toyota, crashing into the rear of the vehicle. The collision caused the Toyota to travel across all lanes of southbound I-5, where it collided with the concrete center divider.

37-year-old Murillo sustained major injuries and was transported to Henry Mayo Hospital. 28-year-old Eric Chavez, a passenger in the Toyota, sustained major injuries and was life flighted to Kern Medical.

The collision remains under investigation.
