Two People Hurt in Separate Accidents on Highway 154

A 48-year-old man and a 60-year-old woman are being treated for moderate injuries

Two accidents on Highway 154 kept the Santa Barbara County Fire Department busy Friday morning.

Four vehicles were involved in an accident about a half-mile north of San Antonio Creek Road on northbound Highway 154. County fire crews, along with the California Highway Patrol and one AMR ambulance, responded with an engine and a ladder truck, said Capt. David Sadecki, public information officer for the fire department.

A 48-year-old male was taken to the hospital with moderate injuries.

A second accident occurred on Highway 154 about a quarter-mile south of Painted Cave in the Windy Gap area.

Two vehicles were involved, and rescue crew used the Jaws of Life to extricate a 60-year-old female from her vehicle, Sadecki said. She was taken to the hospital with moderate injuries.

Both accidents are being investigated by the CHP.

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.

Thanks for asking!
