Bakersfield Police officers are investigating a motorcycle crash that resulted in the death of a woman and critically injured a man overnight on the Stockdale Hwy.
The crash happened just after midnight in the 10,000 block of Stockdale Hwy. near Old River Rd.
The Police state that two people riding on a motorcycle were thrown from the motorcycle when they attempted to turn and accidentally hit the center median.
The woman who was a passenger died at the scene, the other victim who was the driver of the motorcycle, 30-year-old Sean Culp of Bakersfield, was taken to Kern Medical Center where he remains in critical condition.
The county coroner reports the victim who died was wearing a helmet at the time.
The Bakersfield police department is asking anyone who may have seen the crash to call them.
I cannot comment on this accident until the full facts are known. I have seen many supposedly single motorcycle accidents where a car was actually involved in causing the accident but then failed to stop.
