On October 27, 2012, at about 1:05 A.M., Oxnard police officers responded to Pleasant Valley Road and Saviers Road after receiving a call of an injury traffic collision involving a vehicle that had driven into a building.

Firefighters had to utilize special equipment to extricate Morales from his vehicle.
