September 15, 2020 Alan Ahdoot Accidents, Bakersfield, California, Car, Central Valley, DUI, Uncategorized

On September 12th, 2020, a car driver who was running away from the police, crashed into a street sign and injured a 16-year-old boy. The driver was escaping a DUI checkpoint in Southwest Bakersfield, around Brimhall and Renfro roads. Even though Bakersfield Police Department officials were following the fleeing driver, they have not been able to apprehend the suspect. The driver managed to escape on foot after crashing their car to a street sign. The DUI checkpoint held by Bakersfield police managed to arrest several individuals who were drinking under-the-influence. They also arrested several others who were driving with suspended licenses and caught an individual with multiple felony warrants.
