DETAILS:

On October 12, 2010, at approximately 1905 hours, officers from the Oxnard Police Department responded to Wooley Road east of Mercantile Avenue after receiving a call of a traffic collision involving a vehicle and a pedestrian. Once on scene, officers and EMS personnel found that a 75 year old male pedestrian had been struck by a pickup that was driven by Victor Ulteras of Ventura. The pedestrian sustained major injuries as a result of being hit by the pickup and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Preliminary investigation indicates that the pedestrian was crossing northbound across Wooley Road just east of Mercantile Avenue and was not in a crosswalk. While crossing, he suddenly stepped into the path of the Ulteras’ vehicle which was traveling westbound on Wooley Road and was struck.

Neither alcohol nor drugs appear to be factor in this collision nor was excessive speed a factor.

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

An investigation is continuing.
