Incident Information

Pedestrian Collides with Sierra truck Resulting in Death.

On Friday evening, Ventura County Supervisor Carmen Ramirez was struck by a pickup truck while walking in a crosswalk in Oxnard and later died from her injuries. The crash occurred around 6:40 p.m. at the intersection of Seventh and A streets, according to police. The 38-year-old driver of the truck stayed at the scene and cooperated with investigators. Police say the driver was headed west on Seventh Street toward A Street when the crash occurred, and that Ramirez was crossing the intersection within the crosswalk. Paramedics rushed Ramirez to an emergency room, but she did not survive. 

Ventura County officials announced the death of Carmen Ramirez, chair of the Board of Supervisors, in a social media post Thursday evening. Ramirez, 73, was involved in a vehicle accident in Oxnard and passed away this evening, according to the post. We extend our heartfelt condolences to her family, loved ones, and her City and County community,” the county said.

Ramirez grew up in the San Gabriel Valley as one of six siblings and moved to Ventura County in 1978 to begin her career as a legal aid attorney serving low-income communities, according to her 2020 campaign website. She was elected to the Oxnard City Council in 2010 and served for 10 years before being elected as the Chair of the Board of Supervisors. Throughout her career, Chair Ramirez was a fierce advocate for those who needed it most and will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
