Two Injured in Strange Lompoc Crash
On Friday afternoon, two people were injured in a crash that is still under investigation with local authorities. According to Santa Barbara’s Noozhawk, the incident happened at about 3:51 p.m., near the 1200 block of West Maple Avenue. When first responders arrived on the scene, they found a man and a woman who were reportedly injured after their vehicle crashed into a parked vehicle.
Almost inexplicably, both victims were injured while they were outside of the vehicle. The female had to be airlifted to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital for treatment of injuries, and the other victim was taken to Lompoc Valley Medical Center. At this time, law enforcement officers think that the driver and passenger may have exited the vehicle prior to it crashing. They’re asking anybody with information on the wreck to come forward.
