On March 21, 2012, at about 11:04 a.m., officers from the Oxnard Police Department responded to a traffic collision involving a vehicle and a pedestrian at Seventh Street west of “C” Street. Once on scene, officers found that an Isuzu, mini pick-up truck, driven by Larry Fryar, 65, struck a two-year-old boy (name withheld). The boy was transported to the Ventura County Medical Center where he died as a result of his injuries.
