Narrative:

On 06/06/14, at about 12:06 AM, units from the Moorpark Police Department responded to a single vehicle traffic collision on Walnut Canyon Rd. north of Casey Rd. Shawn Nash was driving his pick-up truck north on Walnut Canyon Rd. and for an unknown reason his truck traveled to the right off the roadway onto the dirt shoulder. Nash's truck rolled over at least once and collided with a wooden Edison power pole on the east side of the roadway. Nash was found trapped inside his vehicle when deputies arrived on scene at 12:08 AM.  There were no passengers in the pick-up truck.

 

The Ventura County Fire Department heavy rescue personnel responded and conducted an extrication to remove Nash, who was trapped in the driver's seat of the vehicle wreckage. The extrication took approximately forty minutes to accomplish.  Nash was transported by AMR Ambulance to Los Robles Hospital.

 

Alcohol does appear to be a factor in the collision and the cause of this collision is still under investigation.  Northbound and southbound lanes of Walnut Canyon at the collision scene were closed for about three and one half hours. Anyone who may have been in the area and/or witnessed this collision is encouraged to contact Senior Deputy Stoyko at the Moorpark Police Station.
