Overturned Car in Partially Completed Roundabout
On Monday, for currently unknown reasons, a car overturned in the partially completed roundabout at the intersection of Highways 154 and 246. According to Santa Barbara’s Noozhawk, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) and the Santa Barbara County Fire Department were called to the scene at 11:26 a.m.
Initially, a helicopter was called out for potential victims, but that call was cancelled. Thankfully, this wreck was changed to a “non-injury” crash. Prior to last week, when the roundabout opened for traffic, this intersection was a traditional four-way stop. There’s still no word on the actual cause of this crash. Very little information has been released about this one-car wreck, which is likely still under investigation.
