Young Girl Remains Hospitalized After Suspected Hit-And-Run

OXNARD (CBS) — Two girls struck in a possible hit-and-run accident in Silver Strand Saturday have been released from the hospital, while the most severely injured child was transferred to another hospital Monday, officials said.

The three girls were walking in the northbound bicycle lane of Victoria Avenue near Santa Monica Drive about 7:10 p.m. Saturday when they were struck by a northbound vehicle that veered into the lane, the California Highway Patrol reported.

The victims were sisters ages 6 and 8 and their 10-year-old friend. The vehicle missed Joan Aronson, 50, of Oxnard. Aronson, the sisters’ mother, was closest to oncoming traffic as she and her daughters walked their friend home, officials said.

The vehicle left the scene after the crash. A witness ran after it and flagged down a vehicle to help, but the driver was not found, officials said.

The 8- and 10-year-old girls were discharged from the hospital, said Officer Steve Reid, a spokesman for the Ventura CHP.

The 6-year-old was transferred to a Northridge hospital. The children’s names were not released.

CHP officials are seeking the public’s help in finding the driver and vehicle, he said.

The vehicle was described as a silver or gray older model with tinted front windows. It had damage to its left front fender, a headlight and a bumper, and it was missing a hubcap, officials said.

CHP officials plan to put up an electronic sign about the incident near the scene in hopes of getting help from the public, Reid said.

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close those bad cases.
    At the corner of Calaveras and N. Park Victoria in Milpitas California two corrupt DEA allmost caused the death of an elderly lady while they where harrassing a suspect.
    The elderly lady was crossing the street about 15 yards ahead of the suspect’s car that was going west bound on Calaveras after having just pulled out of the Shell station. One of the DEA in the bus stop near the Shell station tried to gain the attention of the suspect thereby almost causing the car to hit the elderly lady. The other DEA was at the Shell station.
    They have also recently, on several occasions, entered my home while I was not there so that they can get better access to my vehicle and loosen steering linkages, remove wheel weights, tamper with breaks, tamper with transmission linkages, etc… Every time I detect that they have entered my home, my dog looks like he is not feeling well. Why take my insolence out on a dog?
    They are also shooting BB guns at my car while driving. One instance they shot a BB gun at my car in a very busy intersection of highways 680&101 while I was traveling 55+ mph.
    They have been harrassing me for 20 years.
    The DEA is part of the problem and not solution. Apart from being the proxy force for the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) and the NSA, they have been a failure since Nixon’s inception. The DEA could benefit from a large buget cut and employee rift to remove the corrupt ones.
