Bakersfield police are investigating a series of Saturday night crashes they characterized as “intentional conduct” on Sunday, saying one man had died and the suspect was in danger.
It all started on Saturday at 9:40 pm when police went to Block 4200 on Jewette Avenue to report a car accident. Immediately after a hit-and-run involving pedestrians on Q Street and West Columbus Street was reported, a serious injury collision was reported on Q Street’s 3900 block.
Police said in a news release that a driver driving a pickup truck with a utility trailer on Jewette Avenue’s 4200 block was deliberately ramming another vehicle. The driver tried to hit the same vehicle again, but hit a pedestrian on Q and West Columbus.
Police said in a news release that the driver was involved in a head-on collision at 3900 blocks on Q Street after driving.
According to police, two occupants of the vehicle that collided with Jewette Avenue were slightly injured and were treated on-site. Pedestrians identified only as men suffered moderate injuries and were taken to the hospital.
According to police, the driver of the car of the victim of a head-on collision was taken to a hospital where he died. The Kern County Coroner’s Office has identified him as Everard Perez Jr., 26, in Bakersfield. He died at Khan Medical on Saturday at 10:48 pm, the coroner’s office reported.
His passenger woman was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
Bakersfield police said the suspected man had not been identified.
