On February 4, 2012 at about 11:30 p.m., Oxnard PD officers along with EMS personnel responded to a single vehicle (motorcycle), injury collision at the intersection of Fifth and “C” Streets. When officers arrived, theydiscovered that the motorcycle collided with the curb and a light standard. Officers and EMS personnel attended to the driver, a 21-year-old male. The driver was unconscious and sustained multiple injuries to his legs and upper torso as a result of the collision. He was transported to the Ventura County Medical Center for treatment where he is listed in critical condition. 
Preliminary investigation indicates that the motorcycle was traveling eastbound on Fifth Street approaching “C” Street. The rider failed to negotiate a curve and crossed into the opposing traffic lane.  The motorcycle struck a curb causing the rider to lose control and subsequently strike a light pole. No other vehicles were involved.
Investigators suspect that the motorcyclist was traveling at a high rate of speed and was not able to negotiate the curve because of the high speed. It is not known whether alcohol contributed to the collision. The motorcyclist was wearing a helmet.
Anyone with information about this collision is encouraged to call Oxnard PD at (805) 385-7740 or Officer Scott Aaron at (805) 385-7750. If you wish to remain anonymous you may call Ventura County Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477. You can also visit this site to submit a tip via text or email.
