Two Motorcyclists Seriously Hurt in Crash

Accident occurred Monday night on Highway 135 north of Los Alamos

Two motorcyclists suffered serious injuries Monday night in a crash north of Los Alamos, according to the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.

The accident occurred at about 7:35 p.m. at Highway 135 and Harris Grade Road, said Capt. David Sadecki.

Each motorcycle had one person on board, and both suffered head injuries, Sadecki said.

One was transported to Marian Regional Medical Center via AMR ambulance, and the other was airlifted to the hospital by a Calstar helicopter, Sadecki said.

Details and cause of the accident were not available Monday night, nor were the names of the victims.

Highway 135 was closed for a time while emergency personnel attended to the injured and cleared the wreckage, but eventually was reopened, Sadecki said.

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.
