On May 9, 2011, at approximately 1940 hours, an officer of the Oxnard Police Department was driving in a marked black and white patrol car southbound on Victoria Ave approaching Wooley Rd. He saw a motorcycle travelling southbound on Victoria Ave south of Wooley Rd that was travelling at a high rate of speed and making numerous lane changes without signaling. The motorcyclist stopped at the red light at Hemlock St.

The officer pulled in behind the motorcyclist and initiated a traffic stop for the various vehicle code violations. The motorcyclist turned around and looked at the officer and then immediately fled eastbound on Hemlock St from Victoria Ave with the officer in pursuit. The motorcyclist ran the red light at Hemlock St and Patterson Rd. The motorcyclist then collided with a stopped vehicle at Hemlock St and Ventura Rd. The motorcyclist was identified as Kyle Snow.

Snow was transported by ambulance to VCMC to receive treatment for injuries resulting from the traffic collision. Snow’s blood alcohol content was found to be 0.17%, which is just over twice the legal limit. Snow was cited for driving under the influence of an alcoholic beverage, evading, hit and run, and being an unlicensed driver.

If anyone has information about this collision please contact Senior Officer Brian Woolley at 385-7749.

An investigation is ongoing.
