Source: California Highway Patrol
On March 2, 2019, at approximately 1025 hours, a fatal traffic collision occurred at Casa Dorinda Life Care Community. A fifty-three year old Santa Barbara resident was backing in a 2014 Hino box truck as a seventy-seventy year old Santa Barbara resident was walking in the roadway to the rear of the truck. At that time, a collision occurred between the truck and the pedestrian. The pedestrian suffered fatal injuries as a result of the collision, and was pronounced deceased at the scene.
This collision occurred on private property and therefore no public roadways were affected. The collision remains under investigation at this time. Victim information will be released through the Santa Barbara County Coroner's office after the next of kin have been notified.
