Narrative:

 

 

 

On Tuesday night, at approximately 11:40 PM, a solo vehicle collision occurred on northbound Westlake at Rainfield Avenue.  The seventeen-year-old male driver lost control of his Land Rover SUV as he traveled northbound on Westlake Boulevard. The vehicle slid sideways into a curb at the intersection with Rainfield Avenue. The SUV continued traveling northbound, striking the northeast curb, causing it to roll end over end.  It struck a cement barrier with a fire hydrant and a large tree.  The vehicle continued to roll, colliding with numerous trees on the east parkway before coming to rest approximately three hundred feet from the intersection.

 

The female passenger, Alexandria Ring, was partially ejected from the vehicle and suffered substantial injuries.  She was transported to Los Robles Hospital for treatment.  The juvenile passenger declined any medical assistance.  The juvenile driver suffered minor injuries and was also transported to Los Robles Hospital for treatment.  He was later transported to the East County Station where he was issued a citation for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, causing injury.  He was subsequently released to his parents.  Vehicle speed and alcohol are potential factors in this collision.

 

Due to the recent rise in speed related collisions on Westlake Boulevard, the Thousand Oaks Police Department's Traffic Bureau will be conducting extra enforcement in the area.  With a zero tolerance for speed related offenses, please monitor your driving habits and be observant of potential traffic issues as you drive on the city streets and highways. Please drive safely.
