(Oxnard, CA) On Monday, April 23, 2012 at about 7:45 p.m. Oxnard PD officers responded to the intersection of Cesar Chavez Drive and Rose Avenue in Oxnard. A 16-year-old male resident of Oxnard was hit while riding his bike in the north crosswalk of the intersection.
According to witnesses, the teen was traveling east, across the north side of the intersection against a red light. A woman in a 2007 Honda Accord was traveling north on Rose Avenue and hit the bicyclist. The teen was taken to Ventura County Medical Center by ambulance. He suffered minor injuries. The driver of the Honda was not injured in the collision.
Neither drugs nor alcohol are factors in this collision.
This is the second crash involving teenaged bicyclists in Oxnard in the past three weeks. In both crashes, the bicyclists violated the right-of-way of cars. Fortunately, in this most recent crash, the teen was not seriously injured. In the crash that occurred on April 4 at Saviers Road and Fir Avenue, the teen suffered very serious injuries. It’s very important for bicyclists to use caution when traveling the roadways with cars and in no case is it appropriate for bicyclists to cross streets against red lights or ride out into traffic lanes.
Anyone with information about this crash 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. You can also visit this site to submit a tip via text or email.
