On Friday July 16, 2011 at about 1:37 A.M., officers from the Oxnard Police Department responded to a possible injury collision at the intersection of Pleasant Valley Road and Rose Avenue involving a pedestrian. When police arrived they found an injured male laying face down along the north curb of Pleasant Valley Road just west of Rose Avenue. The Oxnard Fire Department had responded to the scene and rendered aid to the pedestrian.

A preliminary investigation indicates that the pedestrian may have been crossing northbound across Pleasant Valley Road at Rose Avenue. Based on the pedestrian injuries, it is believed that he was struck by a vehicle that was traveling westbound on Pleasant Valley Road. The vehicle and its driver fled the scene of the collision without rendering aid to the pedestrian.

The pedestrian was transported to Ventura County Medical Center and is currently listed in critical condition.

At this time, the pedestrian has not been identified. The pedestrian is a Hispanic male, approximately 60 years, with salt and pepper hair. He also has a beard and mustache and a tattoo on his left hand.

The Oxnard Police Department is requesting the assistance of the public. If you witnessed the collision or have any information regarding the identity of the pedestrian or of this collision please contact the Traffic Investigator, Senior Officer Maria Peña at 805-385-7750.

It is undetermined if alcohol was a factor in the collision. An investigation is continuing.
