One person was injured following a single-vehicle rollover collision on Highway 101 in Santa Maria on Saturday morning.
Santa Barbara County firefighters and Santa Maria City firefighters responded to the northbound lanes just north of Santa Maria Way at 8:45 a.m. Crews discovered a silver sedan on its roof on the right-hand shoulder of the highway with one passenger.
The passenger had to be extricated from the vehicle using the Jaws of Life. Once extricated they were transported to Marian Medical Regional Hospital with moderate injuries.
There were traffic restrictions in the area during the emergency response. California Highway Patrol is investigating the cause of this incident.
