DETAILS:

On July 28, 2010, at approximately 1909 hours, officers from the Oxnard Police Department responded to Victoria Avenue, South of Gonzales Road after receiving a call of a roll-over collision involving two vehicles. Once on scene, officers and EMS personnel found that the vehicles, a white, BMW sedan and a red, Ford compact had collided in the southbound lanes. As a result of the collision, the red compact had overturned, trapping the driver, Shannon Martinez, 26 of Ventura. She was extricated by fire department personnel and transported to Ventura County Medical Center for multiple injuries. She was admitted and is in serious but stable condition. The driver of the BMW, a 25 year old male of Oxnard and his passenger, a 14 year old male of Oxnard, died at the scene. Their names are being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

Preliminary investigation indicates that the BMW was traveling northbound on Victoria Avenue and began passing other northbound traffic by driving in the dirt center median. The BMW lost control and began sliding sideways and crossed into the opposing lanes. Upon crossing into the southbound lanes, the BMW collided with the red compact.

If anyone has information about this collision please contact Senior Officer Maria Pena at 805-385-7750

An investigation is continuing.
