On the night of Wednesday, February 20, 21-year-old Dylan Paul Handy was killed and 21-year-old Fransisco Verni and 20-year-old Albert Hernandez were injured in a crash in Bakersfield. While traveling in the 2100 block of Brundage Lane in a 1995 Saturn SL, Handy swerved from the road and struck a telephone pole. Handy was pronounced dead at the scene. Emergency responders transported Verni and Hernandez to an area hospital to receive treatment for moderate trauma. Authorities are investigating the crash. 


“When a collision results in injury or death, the at-fault driver may be held liable for the expense of the victims’ recoveries or losses,” explained California car accident lawyer James Ballidis. 


Bakersfield accounted for 16 of the 87 fatalities and 1,442 of the 4,278 injuries suffered in motor vehicle collisions in Kern County in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. That year, 131 of the crashes that occurred during the nighttime—between 9 p.m. and 2:59 a.m.—resulted in injury or death. 


All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of Dylan Paul Handy. We would also like to wish a full recovery to Fransisco Verni and Albert Hernandez.


The Bakersfield Californian originally reported this crash.
