Oxnard: Pedestrian hit and killed in early morning accident

medications arial,sans-serif;”>On June 28, 2015, at about 2:25 a.m., officers from the Oxnard Police Department and EMS personnel responded to the 300 block of South Oxnard Boulevard in reference to an injury collision involving a vehicle and a pedestrian. Upon arrival, an unconscious male was found lying in the roadway.

Preliminary investigation indicates that the Acura, driven by 21 year old Oxnard resident Joshua Allred, was traveling northbound on Oxnard Boulevard from Fourth Street. According to witnesses, the male pedestrian was crossing the roadway mid-block, north of Fourth Street. As the pedestrian reached the center median, he suddenly stepped back into the roadway for an unknown reason and was struck by the Acura. The pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene.

Driver Allred and two male passengers, ages 19 and 16, were not injured as a result of the collision and were released from the scene. Excessive speed does not appear to be a factor in this collision.

The collision is still under investigation.

If anyone has information about this collision, please contact Traffic Officer Phil Flores at (805) 385-7749 or via email at [email protected].
