A man suffered moderate injuries and one dog died during a traffic collision on Harris Grade Road Wednesday afternoon.
At 12:04 p.m., Santa Barbara County firefighters responded to a vehicle accident in the 4700 block of Harris Grade Road. They discovered a vehicle had left the roadway and crashed 35 feet over the side, said Public Information Officer Mike Eliason.
Crews gained access to the vehicle and found a male driver in his 50's trapped inside. The Jaws of Life was required to extricate him from the vehicle, which took approximately 10 minutes.
