Trash truck runs over Bakersfield cyclist

A man was in critical condition Wednesday after being run over twice by a trash truck in the 200 block of Jefferson Street in Bakersfield.

The Bakersfield Police Department said the incident happened at 6:06 a.m. when the man attempted to pass the city of Bakersfield trash truck on a bicycle. The man, however, lost control of the bike and crashed in front of the trash truck. Police said the driver of the trash truck did not see the man and ran over him.

The driver then exited his vehicle and summoned medical aid. The man was taken to a local hospital and is in critical condition.

Police said drugs, alcohol, and speed does not appear to be a factor for the driver of the sanitation truck.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to call the Bakersfield Police Department (661) 327-7111.
