Fatal Crash on 5th Street (state Route 34) in Oxnard
OXNARD, Calif. (Jan. 7, 2019) — A 65-year-old Oxnard man died Monday morning in a head-on collision on state Route 34 (5th Street) and East Pleasant Valley Road, a California Highway Patrol report said.
The collision was reported to the 911 dispatchers at 6:21 a.m. this morning. The man who died was driving a 1991 Nissan when his vehicle veered into oncoming traffic and struck a Ford F-250 pickup truck head-on, just east of the Oxnard Pallet Company. The CHP report stated the Ventura County Fire Department responded to the scene, but then called the coroner to respond when the Nissan driver died.
The 27-year-old driver in the pickup truck suffered minor injuries and was taken to a hospital. The fire department closed down 5th Street in both directions. Two flatbed tow trucks were called to the scene to remove the vehicles.
The crash remains under investigation by the CHP.
