On March 18, 2014 at approximately 7:56 A.M., a Ventura County deputy sheriff working out of the Thousand Oaks Station was involved in an injury traffic accident.  The Deputy was driving a marked Sheriff's Department patrol car westbound on Olsen Road approaching Moorpark Road. The Deputy was responding to a call for service.  As the Deputy drove through the intersection at Moorpark Road, Shawna Loos entered the intersection from southbound Moorpark Road. Loos' car collided into the passenger side of the patrol car. 


The force of the collision caused the patrol car to spin and enter the eastbound lanes of Olsen Road where it collided with Alexander Chen's car, which was stopped.  The involved deputy immediately advised sheriff's dispatch of the collision and requested emergency assistance for all the involved parties.


Loos and Chen were treated at the scene and released.  The Deputy was transported to Los Robles Hospital where he was treated for minor injuries and released.  


The cause of the collision is being investigated by the Thousand Oaks Traffic Bureau.  Any witnesses are encouraged to contact the Traffic Bureau at (805) 494-8271.
