Narrative:

On March 21, 2015 at about 6:04 PM, deputies from the Moorpark Police Department responded to a single vehicle traffic collision on Tierra Rejada Road east of Walnut Creek Road.  During the investigation, deputies discovered a Toyota Prius had been traveling westbound on Tierra Rejada Road and for an unknown reason left the roadway colliding with a tree in the center median.  As a result of the collision, the driver sustained fatal injuries and passed away at the scene.

At the same time, a second vehicle traveling east on Tierra Rejada Road in the vicinity of the collision suffered moderate damage as a result of debris being ejected from the Toyota Prius after hitting the tree.  The driver of the second vehicle had complaint of pain and suffered from broken glass striking her in the face and head.  She was treated at the scene by the Ventura County Fire Department and American Medical Rescue (AMR) and released.

Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in this collision at this time.  The cause of this collision is still under investigation.  The Ventura County Medical Examiner's Office will be releasing the decedant's information after the appropiate notifications. Eastbound and westbound lanes near the collision scene were closed for approximately 5 hours as traffic investigators from both Moorpark and Thousand Oaks Police Departments collected evidence.  Anyone who was in the area or may have witnessed the collision is asked to contact Deputy David Anaya at the Moorpark Police Station.
