Motorists heading south on Highway 101 through Santa Barbara were slowed down Thursday by a single-vehicle accident near the Highway 154 offramp, according to the California Highway Patrol.

At about 9 a.m., the CHP and Santa Barbara City Fire responded after a white Ford sedan overturned and landed in the bushes near the offramp, according to the California Highway Patrol.

CHP officers closed the offramp for about 45 minutes while the vehicle was pulled from the bushes and towed away.

Not an easy accident to pull off in perfect weather, if an alert driver is driving at the
right speed, has signaled their intentions, and worked only with a green light from
154 onto the 101 on-ramp.

So, how pray tell, did this accident happen?
