66-Year-Old Man Killed in Bakersfield Pedestrian Crash on Highway 99

In a tragic turn of events on Highway 99 near Olive Drive in Bakersfield, California, 66-year-old Jackie Ruffin lost his life after being struck by multiple vehicles. The Kern County Coroner’s Office confirmed his identity following the incident.

The details of the incident reveal that after being hit by three vehicles, the first driver callously chose to flee the scene, leaving Ruffin in a vulnerable position. However, the two subsequent drivers involved in the collision remained at the scene, cooperating with authorities in the aftermath of the accident.
