A traffic collision between a semi-truck and sedan sent three people to the hospital in the Santa Maria Valley on Friday morning.

At 10:06 a.m., Santa Barbara County firefighters, a ground ambulance, and an air ambulance responded near Betteravia and Telephone Road. 

Firefighters discovered three patients, one requiring heavy extrication. Two patients sustained moderate injuries and were transported to the hospital while the third patient is still requiring extrication, said Captain Daniel Bertucelli.

The collision is under investigation by the California Highway Patrol.

Confirmed on KSBY6. CHP stated a u-turn by the Prius directly in front of the truck which was unable to stop to avoid the accident. Ridiculous. I hope they are gonna be ok.

For what it's worth. Clean factual reporting is good. But why mark it on the site as updated when the article hasn't changed? I have no idea.

I'm not surprised. KEYT shows about 5 articles at a time on their site and has no archive, not even for a day or two. Unless I'm missing something. I'd love to be disabused of this notion.
Also, one can't email the reporters any longer. I gave up on KEYT more than a year ago.
