Last week, there was an apparent drunk driving crash on
Brown Road near Guadalupe. According to Santa
Barbara’s Noozhawk, the wreck happened on Friday night, sometime before
6:45 p.m. Very little information has been released about this crash, but
initial reports indicate that a sedan overturned and trapped the driver and
passenger in the wreckage. The vehicle reportedly left the roadway and
overturned about two miles west of Highway 1.
First responders had to perform extensive extrication
efforts to free the driver and passenger from the wreckage. The passenger was
airlifted to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital for treatment, and the driver was
taken to Marian Regional Medical Center. The driver was arrested on suspicion
of driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI).
