On November 6, 2010, at approximately 1434 hours, officers from the Oxnard Police Department along with EMS personnel responded to the 3100 block of Sturgis Road after receiving a call of a single vehicle collision that had struck an electrical pole. Upon arrival, officers found that the Nissan Altima had been torn into two pieces and the single occupant had been ejected. The driver of the Nissan, Robert James Musgrove was pronounced dead at the scene by EMS.

The preliminary investigation revealed that the driver of the Nissan, Mr. Musgrove, was traveling eastbound on Sturgis Road towards Del Norte at a high rate of speed. Witnesses stated that they observed the Nissan aggressively trying to pass vehicles. Once the Nissan was able to pass a few cars, it sped away at a high rate of speed. For unknown reasons, the Nissan lost control and collided with a large electrical pole. The impact caused the Nissan to be torn into two pieces and for Mr. Musgrove to be ejected. Mr. Musgrove sustained fatal injuries as a result of the collision.

An investigation is continuing.
