3 Injured in Goleta Multi-Vehicle Freeway Accident

Three people were injured in a multi-vehicle accident on Highway 101 at Glen Annie Road Tuesday morning, the California Highway Patrol said.

Officers and medics responded to the scene at 8:19 a.m. and initially reported five vehicles involved, including one rollover, Officer Kevin Taulbee said.

The incident was reported as a hit and run with injuries, but there is no follow-up at this point, he said.

Two vehicles were involved in the initial incident and other vehicles stopped to help, Santa Barbara County Fire public information officer Mike Eliason said. 

One vehicle rolled over at least once and came to rest on its wheels. A pregnant woman and two children were inside and suffered minor injuries, Eliason said. 

They were all properly restrained and the airbags deployed, but the three were taken to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital as a precaution, he added. 

Someone in the other vehicle also had minor injuries but declined transport to the hospital. 

Highway 101's southbound lanes were blocked for a short time and the slow lane was blocked as vehicles were towed away from the scene, according to 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.
