A vehicle versus power pole collision resulted in the arrest of 17 year-old Oxnard driver, injury to his passenger and the closure of a major Oxnard roadway throughout Sunday and possibly into the evening hours.
On 10-11-2009 at 0822 hours, Oxnard police received a call of an injury crash at the intersection of Gonzales Road and Patricia Street. A vehicle collided with a major utility pole that supports both power and communications lines across Gonzales Road. The damage to the pole was such that replacement was necessary.
Traffic along Gonzales Road was closed in both directions between Ventura Road and Patricia Street. Electronic message boards were deployed to warn motorists of the road closure in effect. The closure may extend into the evening due to the complexity of the pole replacement.
The 17 year-old male driver was arrested by Oxnard officers for suspicion of felony driving under the influence of drugs. An 11 year-old female passenger received minor injuries in the collision. Neither occupant required hospitalization. The driver was cited and released to his parents.
An investigation is continuing.
