A young girl is dead and three others were injured after a vehicle ran a stop sign in southwest Bakersfield.

The accident occurred Friday, May 12 at 4:19 p.m. at McCutchen Road and Mountain Ridge Drive. Life-saving actions were taken by emergency personnel, but the girl died at the scene.

Authorities say a woman and a male juvenile were in the same vehicle and were transported to a hospital for treatment of moderate injuries.

The driver of the other vehicle suffered minor injuries and declined medical aid, however she remained at the scene and cooperated with the investigation.
