DETAILS:
 On 7/8/13 at about 1810 hours, members of the Oxnard Police Department Special Enforcement Unit (S.E.U.) attempted to conduct a traffic stop in the area of Channel Islands Blvd. and Ventura Rd.  The vehicle failed to yield to officers and a short pursuit ensued.
 
During the pursuit, the driver of the vehicle, Fernando Ochoa, began driving erratically, eastbound in the 1300 block of W. Channel Islands Boulevard, reaching speeds in excess of 60 miles per hour.  Based on the reckless driving pattern of Ochoa, pursuing officers elected to cancel their pursuit of the vehicle.   
 
The vehicle continued to flee, colliding with two vehicles on Channel Island Blvd. before ultimately crashing into a live line utility pole in the west alley of the 2900 block of Saviers Road.  S.E.U. Officers apprehended Ochoa after a brief foot pursuit.  Ochoa was arrested for numerous narcotics and vehicle related charges including felony evading (2800.2 C.V.C.) and D.U.I. resulting in bodily injury (23153(a) C.V.C.)
 
One uninvolved motorist suffered a minor injury from the traffic collision; however, they refused medical treatment.
 
DATE / TIME PREPARED:  7/8/13, 8:58PM.
