Woman and Children Inured in One-Vehicle Crash
On Wednesday night, a woman was critically injured and two children also suffered injuries when their car struck a tree in Santa Barbara. This one-vehicle crash happened sometime before 6:00 p.m. on La Cresta Circle. According to Santa Barbara’s Noozhawk, for currently unknown reasons, their Toyota Prius slammed into a tree.
The 8-year-old boy and the 11-year-old girl suffered from minor injuries, but the 39-year-old female driver sustained major injuries. All three victims were swiftly taken to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, but there’s no word in their current conditions. Initial reports indicate that there weren’t any skid marks to indicate the driver tried to stop. Could there have been a mechanical issue or brake failure? This crash remains under investigation with local law enforcement officials.
