Two people were injured Wednesday afternoon in a wrong-way vehicle accident on Highway 101 near Buellton, according to the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.
Emergency personnel responded just after 2 p.m. to report of an accident involving two vehicles on Highway 101 northbound at Santa Rosa Road, said Capt. David Sadecki.
The accident involved a wrong-way driver, and two passenger vehicles. A big rig, previously indicated as one of the vehicles involved, pulled to the side to avoid the accident, he added.
Sadecki said one person sustained minor injuries and another was moderately injured.
All 101 northbound lanes at Santa Rosa Road were reportedly shut down for a time, with traffic diverted off at Santa Rosa Road and then back on, according to the California Highway Patrol.
One lane reportedly reopened to traffic shortly after the accident.
An AMR ambulance was on scene, Sadecki said.
"The cause of the accident is currently under investigation by the California Highway Patrol," he said.
No other details were immediately available.
