Fatal Crash Shuts Down Major Oxnard Intersection

Saturday January 09, 2021

    Updated--A bicyclist was killed in a traffic collision that shut down the "Five Points" intersection in Oxnard Saturday afternoon.

     Police say that it happened around 3:43 PM on Oxnard Boulevard just north of Wooley Road.

     Traffic investigators say that a 2019 Peterbilt semi-tractor pulling a 53-foot trailer was northbound on Oxnard Boulevard after turning from Wooley Road when it struck a 75-year-old Oxnard man riding his bicycle.

     The bicyclist died at the scene.

     The 21-year-old Fresno man driving the big-rig immediately stopped, parked along the side of the roadway, and cooperated with officers investigating the incident.

     They "do not believe that speed and/or alcohol are contributing factors to this collision."

     The incident shut down the intersection for several hours but it has since reopened.

     Anyone who might have information about what happened is being asked to call Traffic Officer Michael Gens at (805) 385-7750 or email him at michael.gens@oxnardpd.org
