One person was injured Monday afternoon in a three-vehicle accident in downtown Santa Barbara.

The wreck occurred at about 1:45 p.m. on De la Vina Street, near Victoria Street.

The driver of a sedan was treated at the scene by paramedics and Santa Barbara city firefighters, then transported to Cottage Hospital.

Details of the accident were not immediately available.

The sedan appeared to have rear-ended another sedan, and a third vehicle ended up onto the sidewalk.

One of the most dangerous street in SB - people drive way too fast for the narrow street which has far too many cars parked blocking driveways and intersections.  I see near misses every day on this street -  they either need to slow traffic down or eliminate street parking all together. 

I think stop signs on every block would work.  We’ll have to wait for a few deaths before the city does anything though,  they’re too busy planning bulb outs and sign reflectivity to worry about actual traffic flow and pedestrian safety…
