Fatal Head-On Crash Near Lompoc
Last week, there was a fatal head-on collision near Lompoc. According to Santa Barbara’s Noozhawk, the wreck happened on Friday evening on Highway 1. Very little information has been released about this fatal crash, but we do know that a 24-year-old passenger was killed in the wreck. For currently unknown reasons, a northbound Honda S2000 veered off of the right side of the road and then careened back across multiple traffic lanes before hitting a southbound Nissan Sentra head on.
The passenger in the Nissan was pronounced dead on the scene. The drivers in both vehicles had to be airlifted to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital for treatment of serious injuries. No information has been released on either driver’s current condition or on the full extent of injuries involved, and the cause of this crash is likely still under investigation with local law enforcement officials.
