BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — It’s been more than 6 months since the July 22 hit-and-run crash near CSU Bakersfield that killed 65-year-old Deborah Ann Geneau, and still no one has come forward to take responsibility.
According to Chain | Cohn | Stiles, the Bakersfield Police Department has finished its investigation and filed its report in the fatal crash.
With no arrests made as of yet, the family of Deborah Geneau and Bakersfield law firm Chain | Cohn | Stiles has increased its reward to $7,500 for the person who helps identify the driver of a 2013-2019 dark gray Nissan Sentra that is suspected of causing the crash on Stockdale Highway near Don Hart Drive.
That vehicle turned into the bike path parking area across from CSUB immediately after the collision, police said. It had driver’s side damage.
The family is also hoping any witnesses in the crash – or anyone who was able to take photos or videos – will come forward and provide police with any information they may have.
Anyone with information is urged to call 326-3967 or the Kern Secret Witness line at (661) 322-4040.
