DETAILS:
On November 24, 2011, at about 4:30 p.m., officers from the Oxnard Police Department responded to the 1300 block of West Olive Street regarding a collision involving a bicycle and a pick-up truck. When officers and EMS personnel arrived, they found an injured 6-year-old boy.
 
The boy was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency medical services personnel.
 
The preliminary investigation indicates that the boy on the bike was traveling eastbound on the south sidewalk of Olive Street toward M Street. The pick-up truck was also traveling eastbound on Olive Street toward M Street. For unknown reasons, the boy rode into the street and was hit by the pick-up truck. The collision knocked the boy from his bicycle; he was then run over by the truck. The driver was not cited because the preliminary investigation revealed that the child violated the driver’s right of way.
 
Alcohol or drug impairment is not suspected in this collision. If anyone has information about this collision please contact Senior Officer Maria Peña at (805) 385-7750.
