A head-on collision took place on Thursday, June 9th in Ventura.
The accident occurred on Highway 33, just north of Casitas Vista Road just before 6 a.m.
It is unclear at this time what caused a pickup truck and sedan to crash.
One person became trapped inside one of the vehicles as a result.
There was also 30 gallons of diesel spilled into the dirt on the right-hand shoulder that the Environmental Health Division had to come clean up.
Police reopened the traffic lanes just before 10 a.m. after cleanup and investigation.

- They are most common on two-lane highways
- Failure in negotiating a curve on the road causes 23% of all fatal head-on collisions
