DETAILS: On 2-9-13, at about 1240 hours, CHP and the Oxnard Police Department began receiving calls of two separate traffic collisions in the area of Del Norte and the 101 Freeway. Officers arrived on scene and located two vehicles that had collided and were sent over the embankment on the south east corner of the intersection. Officers learned that one of the vehicles, 07 Nissan Frontier Pickup, had been involved in a separate minor side swipe collision on the southbound 101 freeway just before Del Norte. The truck continued onto the off ramp at Del Norte at a high rate of speed. The pickup ran the stop sign and collided with a Honda Accord which was stopped at the intersection. The impact caused both vehicles to go down the embankment.

The driver and one of the passengers from the pickup fled the scene. With the help of witnesses in the area, officers were able to contact both parties. The driver, who was later identified as Oswaldo Hinojosa was found to be over twice the legal blood alcohol limit and arrested for DUI as well as felony hit and run causing injury.

The two passengers in the Honda Accord were transported to a local hospital for their injuries. The passenger in Hinojosa's vehicle was released.

The Oxnard Police Department is asking if anyone had witnessed the collision or was involved an additional collision prior to this incident, to contact Officer David Kelley.
