Narrative:

 

On May 12, 2017 at about 8:56 PM, deputies from the Moorpark Police Department responded to a traffic collision on Tierra Rejada Road just east of Walnut Creek Road.  At the location, deputies found that a vehicle accident had occurred when a vehicle left the roadway for an unknown reason and struck a tree in the raised center median.  The vehicle was being driven by a female driver, eastbound on Tierra Rejada Road east of Walnut Creek Road. 

 

Both occupants, a female driver and her male passenger, were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the collision.  Both occupants were injured as a result of the collision and transported by ambulance to Los Robles Regional Medical Center.  At the hospital, the driver succumbed to her injuries and the passenger was admitted and has undergone surgery for his injuries.

 

Alcohol / drugs do not appear to be a factor in the collision at this time.  This traffic accident is currently under investigation by the Ventura County Sheriff's Office, Moorpark and Thousand Oaks Traffic Units.  Anyone who may have any information about this traffic accident are encouraged to contact the traffic unit at the Moorpark Police Department.  Tierra Rejada Road was closed in both directions for about three and a half hours during the course of the investigation.
