Deadly Bicycle Crash on Rice Road Kills Eliseo Ramirez
Oxnard, CA (February 3, 2020) – On Tuesday, 73-year-old Eliseo Ramirez of Oxnard died in a bicycle crash on Rice Road.
The authorities responded to the crash scene at 8:13 a.m., south of East Fifth Street.
Apparently, a 49-year-old Oxnard woman was traveling in a 1999 black Dodge Ram in the left lane.
At the same time, Ramirez was riding a Schwinn bicycle along the right shoulder of Rice Avenue.
The bicycle traveled directly into the path of the Dodge Ram. As a result, the two crashed head-on.
