Traffic Collision

Traffic CollisionA severed wheel gives silent testimony to the force of impact in a two-vehicle traffic collision at 6:10 p.m. Sunday night at the intersection of North Norma Street and West Inyokern Road. According to Brett Grassi, public information officer for Kern County Fire Department, one person was transported by Liberty Ambulance to Ridgecrest Regional Hospital with injuries. One vehicle wound up on top of an electrical box, so power had to be cut before the vehicle could be removed. Both vehicles were towed from the scene. No other details were available as of press time. Photo by Laura Austin
