malady times; font-size: 16px;”>July 14th, physician Monday afternoon just past 3pm the Ventura Police Department Command Center received 9-1-1 calls regarding an injury traffic collision at the Cabrillo Pharmacy in the City of Ventura.  Officers arrived on scene and found that the pedestrian, Holly Gross, had sustained major injuries after being struck by a truck being driven by Lucia Castellanos. Gross was transported to the Ventura County Medical Center and succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead.  

After a preliminary investigation, it appears that Gross had parked in the Cabrillo Pharmacy parking lot and was preparing to enter the Pharmacy. While she was walking in the parking lot behind Castellanos’ truck, Castellanos began to back out of her parking space and hit Gross with the rear of her truck and pinned her against the Pharmacy building. Neither alcohol nor drugs appear to be a factor in the collision. 

The investigation into this collision is on going. Anyone with information or who had witnessed the incident is urged to call the Ventura Police Department at (805)339-4409.
