Van Runs Into Passenger Train In Camarillo; One Dead, One Injured

Posted on Tuesday, December 31, 2013 6:40am

Authorities are trying to figure out why a Ventura County woman’s van ran into a passenger train, leaving her dead, and a second person injured.

The accident happened just before 11 a.m. yesterday, off of Las Posas Road in Camarillo.  Ventura County firefighters say a van driven by Misty Wood smashed into a northbound Amtrak train, and careened into a railroad pickup truck parked nearby.  A man in the truck was injured.

The Ojai woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

No one on the train was injured, but it was delayed for hours.
