seat uninjured. However, Ms. Brooks was unable to
escape the overturning Kubota and became trapped. Ms. Brooks succumbed to her injuries at the scene
and was pronounced deceased at 0048 hours. Alcohol
intoxication as a factor to this collision is being investigated. Next of kin have been notified. Santa Barbara
