December 4, 2012, a four vehicle collision took place on Highway 246. According to the story on people were injured two of which suffered serious injuries. At about 6:00 a.m. a Lompoc driver in a Honda Civic crossed into oncoming traffic and collided with an Eastbound Toyota Tacoma whose driver is from Lompoc. A pedestrian from Buellton who had stopped to help direct traffic was hit moments later by a Westbound Lincoln Town Car driven by a woman from Lompoc. The Buellton pedestrian along with others involved in the car accident were taken to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital and also to the Lompoc Valley Medical Center for treatment. The dense fog was a big attributer to these auto collisions.
We advise drivers to drive slower when weather conditions such as fog limit visibility to allow for more reaction time.
