The California Highway Patrol said Monday that a Kern County Sheriff’s deputy was responsible for the deadly accident on Weedpatch Highway on May 23, according to a California Highway Patrol report.
Deputy James Throne’s car pulled into the path of another patrol car driven by fellow Deputy Doug Swanson.
The report was conducted by the CHP’s Fresno-based major accident investigation team and found that Throne was the primary cause of the accident.
Throne died at the accident in which Swanson suffered multiple broken bones along with a concussion. He has yet to return to work.
Sheriff Donny Youngblood said that the sheriff’s department is conducting an administrative investigation into the accident and there’s no estimate on when the investigation or the report will be released.
