Multi-Vehicle Rollover Crash in Santa Barbara
Last Friday, at least one person was hospitalized after a multi-vehicle rollover crash happened in downtown Santa Barbara. According to Santa Barbara’s Noozhawk, the wreck happened near the corner of Cota and Olive Streets sometime before 2:30 p.m. This chain-reaction crash is being attributed to one driver who was reportedly playing with her cell phone, when she failed to stop at a stop sign.
Her SUV hit a truck, which then struck a van that was traveling westbound on Cota Street. The truck rolled over, and at least one person was transported to the hospital for treatment of injuries. Traffic was backed up as crews worked the scene. As of Friday afternoon, no citations were issued, but the wreck was still under investigation.
