 On June 1, 2013, at about 4:20 P.M., officers and EMS responded to an injury traffic collision involving two pick-up trucks at the intersection of Ventura Road and Hill Street. Upon arrival, officers found that a blue Chevy pick-up truck had collided with a tan Chevy Silverado and then struck a light pole. Officers also found an unconscious male in the blue Chevy.
Preliminary investigation indicates that the blue Chevy truck, driven by Ronald Finch, was traveling southbound on Ventura Road towards Hill Street. The tan Chevy Silverado, driven by Alvaro Diego Juarez, was stopped in the left turn lane of southbound Ventura Road at Hill Street. Witnesses stated that the blue Chevy quickly veered to the left just before Hill Street, striking the rear of the Silverado. The blue Chevy continued forward and collided into a light pole.  
Driver Finch was transported for further treatment and is currently listed in critical condition. Driver Juarez and his passengers, Janet Olguin (24 years) and Luis Diego (22 years), were also transported and are currently listed in stable condition.
A witness advised police personnel that the blue Chevy had collided into a traffic control box at the intersection of Victoria Avenue and Wooley Road several minutes before colliding with the Silverado.
It is suspected that drugs or alcohol were a factor in the collision.
If anyone has information about this collision, please contact Senior Officer Maria Peña at 805-385-7750. The investigation is ongoing.
