Car crashes down I-10 onto Broadway


November 17, 2019

BLYTHE, Calif On Monday, November 11 just before noon, Charles Boles (age 62 of Bakersfield) was driving a rented 2019 Dodge Journey westbound on 1-10 along with a passenger Patricia Harbison (also of Bakersfield) in the left lane at an unknown speed.

For an unknown reason, he drove into the dirt center median where he continued west, out of control until he came to the opening between the eastbound and westbound lanes before the Broadway overpass. The dodge Journey continued west, in the dirt area, off of the freeway, down between the westbound and eastbound freeway lanes, crossing Broadway where it overturned and came to rest on its wheels entangled on the perimeter fence on the west side of the street.

Both Boles and Harbison were transported to Palo Verde Hospital for treatment. It is unknown at this time if drugs or alcohol were a factor in the collision.
