On November 24, 2013, at about 3:46 A.M., officers from the Oxnard Police Department and EMS personnel responded to the intersection of “J” Street and Cedar Street reference a traffic collision involving a white Toyota Corolla and several parked vehicles. When officers arrived, they found an unconscious male in the Toyota that had collided with a Pontiac Bonneville, a Chevy Blazer, and a chain link fence.
The preliminary investigation indicates that the Toyota Corolla, driven by an unidentified Hispanic male, was traveling northbound on J Street towards Cedar Street. For unknown reasons, the vehicle failed to negotiate and bend in the roadway and crossed into the opposing lane of traffic. The vehicle then collided with two parked vehicles and into a chain link fence.
The driver of the Toyota was transported to a local hospital and is listed in “serious but stable” condition.
Alcohol is suspected to be a factor in this collision.     
If anyone has information about this collision, please contact Senior Officer Maria Peña at
805-385-7750.  The investigation is ongoing.
