BUTTONWILLOW, CA (April 18, 2021) – Authorities identified the passenger who died in a DUI crash in Buttonwillow Monday morning last week, April 12.
She was 51-year-old Angelena Marie Huffman of Oroville, according to the Kern County Sheriff’s Office.
The crash happened around 8:07 a.m. on southbound 5 Freeway, just south of Taft Highway. According to the CHP, 54-year-old Scott Charles Page of Oroville was driving a 2004 Nissan Murano at speeds between 70 to 80 mph when the SUV entered the center median.

As a result, Huffman was ejected from the car and died at the scene. She was not wearing a seat belt.
Page suffered major injuries and was taken to Kern Medical Center. Police later arrested him on suspicion of driving under the influence.
An investigation into this fatal crash is ongoing.
