A woman sustained major injuries after her vehicle rolled over on Highway 101 southbound near the Nojoqui Grade.
At 12:28 p.m., Santa Barbara County firefighters responded with California Highway Patrol, AMR ambulance, and a CalStar helicopter just outside of Buellton. They discovered a Chevy Trailblazer had rolled over with one female driver, estimated to be in her 20’s, ejected from the vehicle. She was found next to the vehicle in the southbound lanes. There were no other vehicles involved, said Captain Dave Zaniboni.
An AMR ambulance was transported the patient to the intersection of Highway 101 and Highway 1 where the CalStar helicopter had landed. The helicopter then transported the patient to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.
The cause of the accident is unknown and the California Highway Patrol is investigating.
