(Oxnard, CA) Today at about 10:30 a.m. Oxnard PD officers received a call of a traffic collision involving a bicycle and an SUV at Saviers Road south of Fir Avenue. It was determined that a grey Chevrolet Tahoe struck a bicyclist in the northbound lanes of Saviers Road. The bicyclist sustained serious injuries as a result of the collision. Rosalina Mendoza, 33, of Oxnard, the driver of the Tahoe, was not injured as a result of the collision. There was one other adult and three juveniles – ages two, six, and eight, in the Tahoe and they were not injured. The bicyclist, a 12-year-old Oxnard resident, was transported to Los Robles hospital for treatment. His injuries are considered life threatening.
 
The preliminary investigation indicates that the Tahoe was traveling northbound on Saviers Road. For unknown reasons, the bicyclist drove across the northbound lanes, westbound, into the path of the Tahoe; the Tahoe then broadsided the bicyclist. At this time, it is not known if alcohol or drugs were a factor in this collision. 
 
Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to call Oxnard PD at (805) 385-7740 or Senior Officer Maria Peña at (805) 385-7750. If you wish to remain anonymous you may call Ventura County Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
