Police were called to Oxnard Boulevard south of Vineyard Avenue, just before 5:00 p.m. on April 6th. Officers found the victim, an 18-year-old Oxnard resident, had been hit by an Amtrak train. The train had just left the Oxnard station going northbound. Eyewitnesses reported seeing the pedestrian walking on the train tracks, southbound, directly towards the path of the oncoming train. The man tried to jump out of the way of the train at the very last moment, but was hit by the train, and he suffered life-threatening injuries. The man was taken to Ventura County Medical Center where he is listed in critical condition.

Anyone with information related to this incident is encouraged to call the Oxnard Police Department or Ventura County Crime Stoppers, 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Flicka - We inherited about 5 sewer rats when the NHawk/Indy comments sank. If you ever disagree with them, they will downvote your subsequent posts no matter what the topic or content.

People who use the down vote should routinely be listed the same way other commenters are, and if they use down vote w/o serious reason (obscene, incites violence and so forth) too often should be warned, then deleted if they can't function in a society that made freedom of speech into a law. Allowing them to function in anonymity just encourages bullies and cowards.

Good grief. Someone asked why there was a difference in the news of the young man being injured then it said he passed. I gave what I thought was a logical answer and got deleted. Doesn't make any sense to me. Maybe the voter could explain.

Teach your children: never walk on the tracks. You think you'll hear the train coming, but sometimes you just don't. A physicist could explain it--sound waves, speed...
