While traveling on the highway, one motorist veered into opposing lanes of traffic east of Hopper Canyon Road, causing the crash, which involved four vehicles. Emergency responders flew one woman who was in critical condition to the hospital and transported two other women, one man, and a boy and a girl to area hospitals. Authorities are investigating the accident.
Fillmore accounted for one of the 58 fatal and 43 of the 4,277 injury crashes that occurred in Ventura County in 2011, according to the California Highway Patrol. The California Office of Traffic Safety ranked Ventura 34th out of the state’s 58 counties for the number of accidents resulting in injury and death that occurred there; 1st place is the worst ranking a county or city may receive, so the county is about average for traffic safety.
