Siblings Were Hit and Killed on Panama Lane
December 9, 2021

Kern County, California (Bakersfield, CA) – On Wednesday afternoon, December 8, 2021, a double tragedy happened on south Bakersfield street.

A car that went off Panama Lane and swerved over the sidewalk hit and killed a 19-year-old and his 10-year-old sister. Kern’s already-high frequency of pedestrian fatalities was exacerbated by the catastrophe. At 1:16 p.m., the man and the minor were standing at the junction of Panama and Hammond Way when a westbound vehicle entered the eastbound lanes and jumped the curb on Panama’s south side. The vehicle hit a tree after hitting pedestrians and was still there two hours later, its hood folded. The victims were pronounced dead on the spot. Sgt. Chance Koerner of the Bakersfield Police Department said the 19-year-old man was reportedly accompanying his sister home from school.

The child was left off at the intersection by a school bus, according to family members, and her brother met her there on a bicycle when the automobile hit them. A bicycle remained at the collision site, resting on the grass directly behind the vehicle’s back tires. The reason for the automobile leaving the road was unknown to the police at the time. Minor to severe injuries were sustained by the motorist, who was only described as a woman traveling alone.

Panama Lane is still blocked for the investigation, and officials say it will be blocked for a few hours from Monitor Street to South
