Oxnard, CA (September 12, 2019) – At approximately 11:36 p.m. on Wednesday night, September 11th, a 37-year-old woman was struck and killed by a vehicle that fled the scene along Ventura Road.
According to police, the victim was walking in the area when she was hit by a dark-colored SUV that fled the scene. Authorities stated that several other vehicles struck the woman afterward, none of which remained at the accident site.
Officials stated that the woman was crossing the street in a residential area between Hemlock Street and Channel Islands Boulevard. Police are searching for the drivers involved as their investigation into the incident continues.
We would like to offer our condolences to the family of the victim at this time.
On average, a pedestrian in California is reported to be struck and killed by a motor vehicle approximately every two hours. Pedestrian accidents in California have been reported to make up 11 percent of all motor vehicle accident deaths in the state. These statistics are often due to the absolute vulnerability of the victim at the time of a collision, which leaves pedestrians at a higher risk of suffering serious or even fatal injuries.
Deadly accidents can occur at any time, resulting in not only the pain and suffering of losing a family member but the burden of extremely high expenses as well. While it may be difficult, it is terribly important for bereaved family members to understand that they may likely have substantial rights at this time.
