News release issued by the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office.
A Fillmore resident was arrested late Thursday for murder after investigators learned that the fatal traffic collision he caused resulted from an intentional act.
Eduardo Robles was traveling westbound on S/R 126 in a gray Honda sedan Thursday afternoon when he intentionally accelerated his vehicle into the back of another passenger car, according to officials.
That car spun into the eastbound lanes and was struck by a tractor trailer.
The driver of that vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the tractor trailer and Robles’ passenger were injured in the collision and taken to a local hospital.
Robles was booked on one count of murder and one count of attempted murder, and is being held at the Pre-Trial Detention Facility in Ventura in lieu of $700,000 bail.
S/R 126 was closed in both directions for several hours Thursday while detectives and traffic investigators examined the scene.
