BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — One woman is dead and two others are injured after a multi-vehicle wreck on Planz Road.

On Feb. 9, one woman was killed in the 1900 block of Planz Road, after an alleged intoxicated driver crashed into her. An investigation revealed the driver of a Chevy Tahoe, Arturo Munoz, was traveling eastbound on Planz Road when he struck a white sedan with three occupants inside. Two other victims suffered injuries in the crash, which occurred around 11:08 p.m., and were transported to a nearby hospital.

One of the victims has been released, while another is still in critical condition, according to Bakersfield police.

Police followed an SUV from a car meet they had been monitoring when they came upon the traffic collision. Munoz had three prior DUI convictions within the last six years and was taken to jail.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Bakersfield Police Department at 661-327-7111.
