Alfonso Marroquin Martinez Obituary – The Kern County Coroner’s Office has identified a man killed over a week after struck by a vehicle while on a motorized scooter as 66-year-old Alfonso Marroquin Martinez. The California Highway Patrol said at around 6:13 p.m. on Nov. 2, Bakersfield CHP officers responded to a report of a vehicle and a pedestrian crash at Kern Canyon Road and Shalane Avenue.
An early investigation revealed that Martinez was in a wheelchair crossing northbound across Kern Canyon Road, just west of Shalane Avenue, outside of a crosswalk, said officials. CHP said at the same time, a man was driving a Nissan westbound on Kern Canyon Road, just west of Shalane Avenue, at an undetermined speed.
For reasons still under investigation, the Nissan struck Martinez’s wheelchair, ejecting him. Martinez was taken to Kern Medical with major injuries.
The coroner’s report said Martinez died on November 11 from his injuries.
