Semi Truck Crash on Highway 101
On Sunday afternoon, a big rig overturned on Highway 101 in Montecito. According to Santa Barbara’s Noozhawk, the incident happened sometime before 2:00 p.m., just past the Hot Springs Road exit ramp. First responders from the Santa Barbara Fire Department were swiftly on the scene of the one-vehicle crash.
For currently unknown reasons, the large truck rolled over and came to rest on the driver’s side. At least one person was injured in the crash and swiftly transported to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. The cause of this crash is still under investigation with authorities. There was some speculation that the large truck, which was not hauling a trailer at the time, was front-heavy and potentially less stable than a longer rig.
