Maria Ortiz Dead and 1 Injured in Oxnard Car Accident on Rice Avenue

 
OXNARD, CA (June 8, 2020) – Early Saturday morning, a suspected DUI crash on Rice Avenue killed Maria Ortiz in Oxnard.
 
The incident occurred around 7:55 a.m. on Rice Avenue and Channel Islands Boulevard.
 
According to CHP Officer Steve Lutzke, a 2017 Nissan Rogue stopped at a red traffic sign on northbound Rice Avenue just before the crash.
 
A 14-year-old Oxnard boy drove the Nissan with a 41-year-old Oxnard female passenger Maria Ortiz.
 
Meanwhile, a 33-year-old Lake Forest woman driving a 2000 Lexus RX300 came from behind on northbound Rice Avenue.
 
“For reasons still under investigation, the Lexus collided into the rear of the Nissan,” said Lutzke. “Following the crash, the Nissan came to rest in the center median and the Lexus came to rest off the roadway along northbound SR-1 (Rice Avenue). Both vehicles sustained major damage from this crash.”
