updated: Jun 17, 2014, 8:41 AM

Source: CHP

On 06/14/2014, at approximately 0020 hours, Holly Eve Brooks, was driving a Kubota RTV on private property at 1909 SR-246 in the Buellton, California area with Alyssa Whitcraft riding as a passenger. The Kubota was not equipped with seat belts. As Ms. Brooks entered a right turn on the roadway she was traveling on, she allowed the Kubota to leave the main traveled portion of the roadway and it traveled up an adjacent embankment where she lost control. The Kubota started to roll onto its left side and passenger Whitcraft was able to jump from the passenger 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 County Coroner case #14-8628.
