One-Car Injury Crash in Santa Barbara
On Monday afternoon, a woman was injured after her car went off an embankment in a Riviera neighborhood. According to Santa Barbara’s Noozhawk, the incident happened sometime before 8:51 a.m. near the intersection of Eucalyptus Road and Eucalyptus Circle. For currently unknown reasons, the woman’s car left the road, went down an embankment and landed in some vegetation.
First responders had to hike down the embankment to rescue the injured woman. She was then transported to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital for treatment of moderate injuries. A portion of Eucalyptus Hill Road had to be closed until sometime around 10:00 a.m. as a tow truck driver arrived and crews worked the scene. Although very few details have been released, and we don’t know the woman’s current condition, there was some concern over potential spine and neck injuries.
