1 Hurt in Ventura County Auto Accident on Shell Road
VENTURA COUNTY, CA (January 5, 2021) – On Saturday, a person sustained injuries in a single-vehicle crash on Shell Road in Ventura County.
According to a Ventura County Sheriff Department, a deputy on duty attempted to flag down a vehicle for a traffic violation. However, the vehicle refused to stop and fled at a high rate of speed.
Then, the suspect vehicle lost control and veered over to the side of the road. Afterward, it crashed into a bamboo thicket on the Shell Road onramp to northbound State Route 33.
Moreover, the driver of the suspect vehicle and two more persons attempted to flee the scene on foot. However, the driver was caught by deputies and was taken into custody.
Firefighters extricated another person trapped inside the vehicle after the crash. Also, responders transported the passenger to a hospital with unknown injuries.
The incident is under investigation.
If you feel yourself drifting into other lanes due to fatigue or any other reason, safely pull over and rest before continuing to drive. You can also call a friend or an Uber to pick you up if you feel like it would be unsafe to drive.
Ways to Deal with Car Accidents
Each year, around 20-50 million people are injured or become disabled due to an auto crash. To avoid suffering from such incidents, practice safe driving habits on the road at all times.
As a driver, it’s your responsibility to do it even when it is empty, even when there is no police officer around to make sure you make, say, a complete stop.
Even with the best driving habits, it is still important to know what to do if you find yourself in a motor vehicle accident
