Injury Crash Near Lake Cachuma
On Thursday morning, two people were injured in a crash near Lake Cachuma. According to Santa Barbara’s Noozhawk, the incident happened on Highway 154 near the entrance to the lake at about 8:15 a.m. Although very little information about the collision has been released, we do know that there were two vehicles involved, a Ford Excursion and a Pontiac. At least two people were rushed to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital for treatment of moderate injuries.
A portion of Highway 154 had to be closed as crews and first responders worked the scene. Initially, a Calstar medical helicopter was dispatched to the scene, but that request was cancelled. There has been no word on the cause of the crash, which could still be under investigation with the California Highway Patrol.
