Shortly before 5:30 last Sunday evening, a motorcycle accident in Oxnard left two women dead. A 22-year-old Oxnard woman and a 20-year-old Santa Paula woman were riding north on Rice Avenue when a southbound Lincoln Town Car struck them while attempting to make a left turn onto Camino Del Sol. One of the women died at the scene; the other woman died at a nearby hospital. Authorities are investigating the crash, explains a California personal injury lawyer.
Oxnard accounted for 1 of the 11 fatal and 15 of the 227 injury motor vehicle traffic collisions that occurred in Ventura County in 2008, the most recent year for which the California Highway Patrol has posted accident statistics. Recently, a report by National Public Radio indicated that while road-related deaths decreased between 2005 and 2009, motorcycle fatalities have increased.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the families of the two women who died in the motorcycle accident on Sunday.
