Serious Injury Traffic Collision – Update
On November 4, at approximately 2:30am, Ventura Police and Ventura City Fire were dispatched to the 2100 block of Johnson Dr. in regards to a serious, single vehicle roll-over collision. At the time of the incident, witnesses at the scene believed the driver had walked away from the vehicle, leaving two occupants trapped inside the front passenger compartment of the overturned vehicle. Brianna Munoz was removed from the vehicle by Ventura City Fire personnel and taken by ambulance to VCMC for her injuries.
The driver, 44 year old Pedro Munoz, was found pinned inside the driver’s window of the vehicle as a result of the collision and had to be extricated with heavy equipment by fire personnel. Once removed from the vehicle, Pedro Munoz was transported by ambulance to VCMC for serious, life threatening injuries.
Based on the investigation, members of the Ventura Police Traffic Unit authored and served several search warrants related to this collision and ultimately identified 18 year old Brianna Munoz as the driver of the vehicle. On November 15 at approximately 4pm, Traffic Investigators arrested Brianna Munoz at her place of employment for Felony driving under the influence of alcohol and causing injury.
Witnesses mistakenly said the driver had walked away from the collision. When shown a vehicle upside down, witnesses realized the subject that walked away on the morning of November 4, was from the passenger side door and not the driver’s door. The person that walked away has not yet been identified.
The Ventura Police Traffic Unit is asking for anyone with information about this male passenger to please call Collision Investigator Dave Curtis at 805-339-4437.
