On October 21, 2012, at about 3:25 PM., Oxnard PD officers responded to Beaumont Avenue and Abbott Street after receiving a call of an injury traffic collision involving a bicyclist.  Once on scene, officers and EMS personnel found that a Mazda had collided with a juvenile bicyclist in the intersection of Beaumont Avenue and Abbott Street.  The bicyclist, a 13 year old male (name withheld) was injured.  The bicyclist was transported to Ventura County Medical Center with serious head injuries.
Preliminary investigation indicates that the bicyclist was traveling southbound on Beaumont Avenue on the west side of the street towards Abbott Street. The black Mazda Master Touring 5 was traveling southbound on Beaumont Avenue towards Abbott Street behind the bicyclist.  For unknown reasons when the bicyclist reached Abbott Street, the juvenile rider turned directly into the path of the Mazda. Unable to avoid a collision, the Mazda struck the bicyclist. The impact caused the bicyclist to fall to the ground. It should be noted that the injuries of the bicyclist indicate that he was not wearing a helmet at the time of the collision.
The occupants of the Mazda were not injured. The bicyclist is listed under critical condition.
If anyone has information about this collision, please contact Senior Officer Maria Peña at
805-385-7750. The investigation is ongoing.
