Kern County, CA- 1 Person Dead And Another Injured In A Deadly Crash On Highway 43
A man was killed after he was seen driving recklessly on Highway 43 in Kern County, CA on Wednesday, July 17, 2019. The driver was identified as a 41-year old man from Delano. He was reportedly driving his vehicle south on Highway 43, north of Schuster Road just prior to the crash. Jose Jesus Pena, 66, of Armona, was driving north on Highway 43 in his tractor-trailer rig carrying a load of tomatoes in the rig. The Delano man veered into the north lane and crashed into Pena’s truck head-on. Right after the crash, the Delano man’s vehicle caught on fire. He was, thus, unable to leave his vehicle when his car was engulfed in flames. The Delano man was declared dead at the scene. Pena, though, only sustained minor injuries from the crash. It was not known if drugs or alcohol were factors that caused the crash.
