Fatal DUI Crash in Bakersfield

A DUI crash frequently has very serious, life-altering consequences. Many DUI crashes take place at full speed, as DUI drivers often fail to react appropriately to circumstances on the roadway. This delayed reaction time is often accompanied by some form of reckless driving that places all motorists at great risk of being seriously hurt or killed in a crash with a DUI driver.
