A Fillmore resident was arrested late Thursday for murder after investigators learned that the fatal traffic collision he caused resulted from an intentional act, according to a news release Friday from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office.
Eduardo Robles was traveling westbound on Highway 126 in a gray Honda sedan at approximately 2:24 Thursday afternoon when he intentionally accelerated his vehicle into the back of another passenger car.
That car spun into the eastbound lanes and was struck by a tractor-trailer. The driver of the car 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.
Highway 126 was closed in both directions for several hours Thursday while detectives and traffic investigators examined the scene.
The Fillmore Police Department, Ventura County Sheriff’s Major Crimes Bureau, California Highway Patrol, Cal Trans, Ventura Police Department and the Simi Valley Police Department were involved in the investigation.

What led authorities to conclude that this was an intentional act on the driver’s part? They’ve omitted any of that information in this article.
This so called news org….always leaves details out…they, like most others, don’t pay for reporters on staff…just admin people sitting at a desk…
This says it is a press release. We don’t leave details out. We don’t put them in, in the first place.
Yes, I’ve noticed that press releases from the Sheriff’s office or CHP seem to leave out the most interesting details. Anyone reading this would want to know why the driver at fault intentionally drove his vehicle into the back of another. If they aren’t allowed to give out the most important details they should say so.
Why is their even a question about why someone intentionally ran into tha back of someone’s car! That alone is against the law!
