Thousand Oaks High School Staffer Hospitalized After Intentional Hit-And-Run
An activities assistant with Thousand Oaks High School is in the hospital with life-threatening injuries after she was intentionally run over by a student she’d caught stealing from a concession stand during a sports game.
Police say Lisa Solis, 50, was struck by the vehicle around 8 p.m. Friday after confronting the 16-year-old driver. Four other passengers were in the vehicle, which quickly sped away. The driver has since been apprehended by police. He was taken to the Juvenile Justice Center and booked on assault with a deadly weapon.
According to authorities, the perpetrator is not a student of T.O. High but does attend another school in the Conejo Valley Unified School District. Solis has worked for the district for more than a decade.
“We are heartbroken that a member of our CVUSD family suffered life threatening injuries during an incident that occurred outside last night’s basketball game at Thousand Oaks High School,” CVUSD Superintendent Dr. Mark McLaughlin said in a statement. “Mrs. Lisa Solis, Activities Assistant for Thousand Oaks High School is a dedicated member of the TOHS team, and a parent of CVUSD students. Please keep Lisa and her family in your thoughts and prayers.”
Solis’ sister has set up a GoFundMe page for anyone who would like to contribute to her recovery. You can donate here.
