On August 6, 2012, at about 11:38 a.m., Oxnard PD officers responded to Camino Del Sol east of Garfield Avenue after receiving a call of an injury traffic collision.  Once on scene, officers and EMS personnel found a Honda Civic had collided into a tree in the center divider.  The occupants of the Honda, a 16 year old male (name withheld), a 14 year old male (name withheld) and a 14 year old female (name withheld), were trapped in the vehicle and injured.  All three occupants were transported to Ventura County Medical Center with moderate to serious injuries.
Preliminary investigation indicates that the Honda Civic and another vehicle were traveling westbound on Camino Del Sol towards McKinley Avenue at a high rate of speed.  As the vehicles approached McKinley Avenue, the Honda swerved to avoid a collision with a mini-van and lost control. The Honda then collided head on with the tree in the center divider. The occupants of the Honda were extricated from the car by EMS.
Both of the male occupants are listed in stable condition. The female occupant is listed in serious but stable condition.
If anyone has information about this collision, please contact Senior Officer Maria Peña at
805-385-7750. The investigation is ongoing.
