On February 8, 2011, at approximately 0718 hours, officers from the Oxnard Police Department responded with EMS personnel to the intersection of Fifth Street and C Street after receiving a call of an injury traffic collision involving a Gold Coast Transit bus and a passenger car. Once on scene, officers found that a silver 2006 Buick LeSabre had collided into the rear of a Gold Coast Transit bus driven by Adrian Gutierrez.
Firefighters used the Jaws of Life to extricate the driver of the Buick, Cormac, as he was trapped inside. Cormac was transported to the Ventura County Medical Center for his injuries. As a result of the crash, Cormac sustained broken bones in both of his legs. There were 26 passengers on the bus and four of them sustained minor injuries. Three of the injured passengers were transported to the hospital for treatment.
Preliminary investigation indicates that the Buick LeSabre was traveling eastbound on Fifth Street approaching the intersection of C Street. The bus was also traveling eastbound on Fifth Street and was stopped in the left turn pocket for a red light. For an unknown reason, the Buick failed to stop and collided into the rear of the bus.
It has not been determined whether or not alcohol was involved in this collision.
If anyone has information about this collision, please contact Senior Officer Maria Pena at 385-7750.
An investigation is ongoing.
