The "Jaws of Life" was made by a company named Hearst. When a "Hearst" was called for sometimes a "hearse" showed up. Hence, name changed to Jaws of Life.

Another?!! another... Deep sigh. And as careful as one driver may be, you may die by the hands (on the wheel) of another. RIP

I heard what might have happened and it wasn't texting I'm not going to say because right now it's a rumor as far as I'm concerned...

Just to clarify, this was listed as Buellton area CHP responding as there is no Buellton HWY 1 and of course Jalama Rd just south of Lompoc.

That is almost exactly where the headon collision occurred on Monday of this week. Between a sedan and a van. I drive that road twice a day and it’s frightening.

Not again! It's getting really pitch black out earlier each dayand that road is scary enough in the daylight. People please slow down on that road so you stay in your own lane on the curves. Pay close attention the entire time! There is no reason to be distracted on a two lane Hwy.
