A pedestrian sustained moderate injuries after a vehicle versus pedestrian accident in Southwest Bakersfield Sunday night.

The incident happened atound 8:46 p.m. in the intersection of White Lane and Stine Road.

At this time drugs, alcohol and speed do not appear to be a factor in this for the driver of the vehicle.

It is unknown if drugs or alcohol were a factor for the adult male.
