The Camarillo Police Department's Traffic Bureau is investigating an injury traffic accident involving a vehicle and one pedestrian.  The collision occurred on Mission Oaks Boulevard directly in front of Adolfo Camarillo High School. A 16-year-old male juvenile was walking across the street toward the school on Mission Oaks Boulevard, near the main entrance of the front driveway, while using a hand-held device.  As he walked across the street he was hit by Charles Bungert, who was driving a pickup truck northbound on Mission Oaks Boulevard.  The juvenile was in the crosswalk on the eastside of the intersection when he was hit.  Bungert was proceeding northbound on Mission Oaks Boulevard when the left front of his truck collided with the juvenile.


Personnel from the Ventura County Fire Department and American Medical Response responded to the scene. The juvenile was treated at the scene and then transported via ambulance to Los Robles Regional Medical Center for further treatment.  The juvenile is expected to make a full recovery.


At this time alcohol or drugs do not appear to be a factor in this collision.  The investigation is continuing.
