Thousand Oaks, CA – Teen Fatally Struck by Vehicle on Thousand Oaks Blvd near Lakeview Canyon Rd
Thousand Oaks, CA (April 21, 2023) – A 15-year-old boy tragically lost his life as a result of a pedestrian accident that took place in Ventura County on Tuesday afternoon, April 18.
Reports provided by the Ventura County Fire Department show that a group of teenagers were at a bus stop just after leaving school at approximately 3:40 p.m.
As the teenagers, identified as two males, ages 15, and two females, ages 14 and 16, waited at the intersection of Thousand Oaks Boulevard and Lakeview Canyon Road, they were struck by a vehicle.
One of the 15-year-old males suffered fatal injuries as a result of the crash. The three other teenagers were transported to area hospitals for the treatment of injuries.
The car flipped over immediately following the accident and trapped the driver inside. Authorities took the driver in custody after determining that they were a suspect in a stabbing that took place earlier that day in Simi Valley. The driver of the vehicle, identified as 24-year-old Austin Eis, was transported to an area hospital for the treatment of injuries. He was later booked for homicide and assault with a deadly weapon.
At this time, the Ventura County Police Department is investigating the accident.
We hope that the injured victims are able to recover quickly.
Our condolences are with the family of the teen who lost his life in this accident.
