An 18-year old man suffered a moderate injury to the head in a rollover accident on his way home to Stallion Springs on Friday morning.

The accident occurred just after 7:30 a.m. on Nov. 16, when Caesar Huerta's Toyota sedan, owned by his mother, left west bound Banducci Road, rolled over and stopped against a tree.

According to CHP Officer Martinez, hitting the tree probably saved the driver's life, as there was nothing else to stop him from rolling further down the hill.

Kathleen Kline and her daughter Elantra, who were the first to arrive on the scene and called 911, reported Huerta was conscious but appeared slightly confused upon initial contact.

Kern County Sheriff's deputy Kelly Martin in route to work arrived moments later and offered support in obtaining assistance.

Kern County Fire from Stallion Springs Station 12 responded to the scene, and assisted by a unit from Bear Valley Station 18, used the Jaws of Life to extract Huerta from the vehicle, before transporting him by Hall Ambulance to Kern Medical Center in Bakersfield.
