PORT HUENEME, CA (June 19, 2019) – A 44-year-old Port Hueneme female bicyclist died after an SUV hit her on Hemlock Street.
The incident occurred on June 18. The Oxnard police and rescue crews responded to a report of a vehicle and bicycle collision around 5:30 a.m. on Hemlock Street at Seaside Drive.
The rider sustained serious injuries. Responders took her to Ventura County Medical Center in Ventura. However, she later died at the hospital.
