Injury Crash Near Los Olivos
On Tuesday morning, a two-car crash sent two people to the hospital in the Los Olivos area. According to Santa Barbara’s Noozhawk, the incident happened on Highway 154 near Highway 101 at about 10:10 a.m. Apparently, a pickup truck began to hydroplane and drifted into oncoming traffic. Both drivers had to be extricated from their vehicles, and one of them suffered from major injuries.
Due to weather, they were not able to get an airlift medical helicopter for that person, so he was transported via ambulance to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. No information has been released about the extent of injuries involved or that man’s current condition. The other driver also had to be transported to a local hospital for treatment of moderate injuries. This crash is still under investigation with the California Highway Patrol.
