MarBorg Driver Injured in Truck Rollover on Cathedral Oaks Road at Highway 154

The rig tips while rounding the off-ramp, dumping dirt onto the road and closing a lane of traffic

One lane of Cathedral Oaks Road at Highway 154 in Santa Barbara was closed Friday morning after a rollover accident involving a MarBorg Industries truck.

The truck, hauling dirt, turned from southbound Highway 154 onto Cathedral Oaks Road about 8:45 a.m. and rolled over during the right turn. Its load of dirt spilled onto the center divider.

Santa Barbara County Fire Department public information officer David Sadecki said it will take time for county crews to clear the roadway.

He said the 39-year-old male driver was treated for moderate injuries at the scene by firefighters and then transported to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital for treatment.

County Fire engines and a ladder truck responded to the scene, as well as the Sheriff’s Department, the California Highway Patrol and American Medical Response. The CHP is investigating the cause of the accident.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
