CAMARILLO, Calif. - A 21-year-old Oxnard woman was killed early Sunday morning when her vehicle crashed into a pole and then a highway median on Highway 101.
It happened around 3:40 a.m. on northbound Highway 101, north of the Conejo Inspection Facility near Camarillo.
According to the California Highway Patrol, the woman was driving a 2008 Honda sedan when the vehicle went off the road and onto the right shoulder of the highway. The vehicle hit a light pole in the shoulder then veered back onto the roadway and crashed into the center median barrier.
The Ventura County Fire Department responded to the scene and paramedics pronounced the woman deceased. There were no other occupants in the car.
