The Thousand Oaks Police Department's Traffic Bureau is investigating an injury traffic accident involving a vehicle and two pedestrians.  The collision occurred in the 1400 block of Calle De Oro.   Barbara Fritschel and Martha Bielke were walking southbound on the east sidewalk of Calle De Oro, while Marsha Mann was attempting to back her car out of a residential driveway.  Fritschel and Bielke attempted to move out of the path of Mann's car, but they stumbled and fell onto the sidewalk.  Mann continued backing and drove over Fritschel.


Personnel from the Ventura County Fire Department and American Medical Response responded to the scene. Fritschel was treated at the scene and then transported via ambulance to Los Robles Regional Medical Center for further treatment of significant injuries.  Bielke suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene.  Alcohol or drugs do not appear to be a factor in this collision.  The investigation is continuing.
