A man was trapped in his vehicle after it rolled over and caught fire on SR-246 at Refugio Road on Monday evening.
At 10:09 p.m., Santa Barbara County firefighters responded with Sheriff Deputies, California Highway Patrol (CHP), and an ambulance to the scene of the
incident. On arrival they found a single vehicle rollover accident where the vehicle was traveling on SR-246 and after rolling ended up in the parking area of Santa
Ynez High School, reports Captain Dave Zaniboni.
The car had caught fire with a male driver, estimated to be in his 20's, was trapped inside. Firefighters immediately extinguished the fire and extricated the
driver. He then complained of major injuries and was transported to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital via ground ambulance. A CALstar helicopter was requested but
was unable to fly due to weather constraints, reports Zaniboni.
The cause of the incident is unknown and California Highway Patrol is investigating.
