OXNARD, California (October 25, 2016) — Three people were hurt — including a 19-year-old man who suffered major injuries — in a collision Monday night involving three motorists on Ventura Road, according to a report by KTVA News.
The crash took place about 6:07 p.m. last night near Wagon Wheel Road. Police stated that a white 2016 Nissan Altima was traveling northbound on Ventura Road in the No. 2 lane when its driver apparently lost control of the vehicle. The driver was approaching Wagon Wheel Road when the vehicle collided with a second driver in a white 2016 Hyundai Sonata that was driving in the same direction in the No. 1 lane.
A white 2014 Hyndai Elantra was in the right turn lane heading northbound and was also involved.
Police say the driver in the Nissan spun out and crashed into a concrete support pillar underneath the 101 Freeway on Ventura Road. The Hyundai Sonata veered onto Ventura Road and up an embankment where it struck a water main and sheared it off at the base.
Paramedics transported a 19-year-old Oxnard man to Ventura County Medical Center where he was treated for major injuries. The injured teenager had been a passenger in the Nissan. The driver of that car who is also a 19-year-old man suffered minor injuries and was treated at the same hospital, but later released.
The driver of the Hyundai Sonata was treated for minor injuries and released. He was also a 19-year-old Oxnard man. A 26-year-old man driving the Hyundai Elantra was not injured.
Police are heading up an investigation into the crash to determine liability.
