Fatal Hit-and-run Crash on Pleasant Valley Road; 2 injured
OXNARD, Calif. (July 23, 2018) — Elicia Lopez Troncoso, 52, of Oxnard, died and two others were hurt in a hit-and-run collision Sunday night at Pleasant Valley Road, near Syracuse Drive, Oxnard police said.
The collision took place about 9:38 p.m. between three motorists. One of the drivers reportedly fled the scene and abandoned their Ford. One of those hurt in the crash was a 23-year-old Oxnard woman who suffered a major leg injury and the other was treated for minor injuries.
The suspect, identified as Francisco Javier Garcia, 49, of Oxnard, was later located in the 2100 block of Walden Street, about a half of a mile away from where the collision took place. Police had been called by a homeowner who saw a man on their roof. The man was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries he suffered, but it’s unclear at this time if it is the suspect or not.
This was the second fatal collision in the Oxnard area. On Friday, a 32-year-old Oxnard woman was struck and killed by a driver in a pickup truck.
