At 5:17 pm deputies from the Thousand Oaks Police Department responded to a single vehicle traffic collision on Ventu Park Road just north of Hillcrest Drive.  The initial investigation revealed that Armando Estrada was driving his 2006 Chevrolet pickup truck northbound on Ventu Park Road north of Hillcrest Drive.  For an unknown reason Estrada left the roadway and drove over the east curbline on Ventu Park Road.  After traveling a short distance Estrada's truck collided head-on with a tree.   Estrada was transported via ambulance to Los Robles Hospital where he was pronounced deceased.


Based on evidence at the collision scene it does not appear that Estrada died as a result of injuries from the collision.  Investigators believe Estrada might have suffered a medical emergency prior to the collision.
