John Slade, 69, Killed in Highway 101 Car Accident

VENTURA (August 22, 2017) – A man killed in a suspected hit-and-run crash along Highway 101 on July 6 has been identified as 69-year-old John Slade, according to The Ventura County Star.

The accident took place around 11:45 p.m., north of Victoria Avenue.

As per the article, California Highway Patrol said a speeding car was going north on Highway 101 when it struck a vehicle driven by Slade. Slade lost control of his car and slammed into a guardrail on the right side of the roadway.

His vehicle rolled over across all lines into the median. The other car veered right, crashed through a guardrail and went off the roadway, ending up on its side in a ditch.

Slade, of Ojai, was rushed to Ventura County Medical Center where he died.

Hit-and-Run Suspect Patrick McVicker Sought

CHP named the driver who was allegedly traveling at a high rate of speed as 48-year-old Patrick John McVicker. The Ventura suspect did not stop to render aid and fled the scene, leaving his passenger with minor injuries.

Until now McVicker remains at large and is facing two felony charges—gross vehicular manslaughter and leaving the scene of an accident resulting in injury. He is described as 6 feet tall, weighing 225 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes.

Anyone with information on the incident to call 662-2661 or Ventura County Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS or online at venturacountycrimestoppers.org.


We offer our prayers and most heartfelt condolences to the family members and friends of Mr. John Slade during such a difficult time.


Motorists are obligated to remain at the scene after being involved in a traffic accident. In this case, it is evident that Mr. Patrick McVicker will be held fully responsible for causing the incident that led to the death of Mr. John Slade. Regardless of his reasons, leaving the area following a crash is a serious crime and punishable by law, especially if the collision tragically killed another individual. We are hopeful that authorities will be able to locate the suspect and justice will the be served.

The family of Mr. Slade has the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the motorist who has neglected the safety of others on the road. No monetary amount can replace the loss of a loved one, however, it is important that the family members know their legal rights.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.
