On Saturday afternoon, one person was injured after a van landed on top of a smaller vehicle in Santa Barbara. According to Santa Barbara’s Noozhawk, the incident happened near the intersection of Castillo and West Pedregosa Streets at about 12:45 p.m. Very few details about this crash have been released, but we do know that a camper van was headed westbound on Pedregosa Street when it failed to safely negotiate the turn onto Castillo.
The van struck a street sign, launched up the sign pole like a ramp and landed on top of a small Lexus. The driver of the van was transported to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital for treatment of injuries. There has been no word on whether or not anybody was in the Lexus at the time of the crash, but no other injuries were reported on the scene. This wreck is still under investigation with the Santa Barbara Police Department.
