On Feb. 27, 2023, three NPHS students were riding on an off-road electric motorcycle and collided with a car at the intersection of Via Las Brisas and Via Grande in Dos Vientos. The students were going down a hill on the wrong side of the road, and crashed into a car making a right turn.

Close friends of the victims have stated that one of the students landed in the grass and sustained minor injuries. Another student suffered extensive injuries, including a fractured skull, fractured hip and two broken legs. The third student suffered a compound fracture in his leg, but has since come home from the hospital. 

The driver stayed at the site of the crash until the students were taken to the emergency room. They cooperated with police and were willing to help. 

One of the students is still recovering at LA Children’s Hospital. He is currently still in the hospital but is expected to make a full recovery. Another student returned home after several days in the hospital, but will need to continue recovery at home.

Jeremy Paris, Thousand Oaks Police Chief, stated that there were no traffic violations made by the car involved in this accident.
