How do i find out the details of an auto accident that occurred in 1972?

my friend was nine years old and was hit by a car in Bakersfield, ca on Niles and fairfax...she was injured pretty bad, but her mother is deceased and she never got any of the details. she is trying to find out anything she can about this. where can she look? she can not even get any of her medical records.. she is not sure what all her injuries were, but does know that she was in the hospital almost a year.

Check with the local Police Department in Bakersfield. Also, you can check with their State Patrol. If the report is still available, it's probably archived and will most likely cost to get. Not sure if that will help, but it's a starting point. GL

she has tried that and she thinks the records were sealed....she was only nine at the time and when she was 13 she ran away from home. she thinks her mom may have settled out of court, but she is not sure what happened.... she never got anything. now she is having numerous complications from her injuries.

The best option to get this information would be to check with the traffic department in the area where the accident occurred. This is because they keep records of accidents that have occurred in their local area.
