Santa Barbara Man Killed in Highway 101 Crash

CHP says he crossed the center divider before hitting one vehicle and getting rear-ended by another

A Santa Barbara man died in a multiple-vehicle crash Sunday night on Highway 101 near Ventura, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Michael Charles McAdams, 51, reportedly was traveling northbound, south of the Hobson Road undercrossing, when he turned left and drove over the divider into oncoming southbound traffic, hitting a pickup truck head-on. His car then spun and was hit from behind by another vehicle.

McAdams died at the scene, authorities said.

The 52-year-old San Jacinto woman driving the pickup truck was taken to the hospital with some injuries. Her passenger and the driver of the other vehicle, a 29-year-old man from Reno, Nev., were uninjured.

An autopsy was scheduled for Monday.

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!
