A three-vehicle crash south of Guadalupe closed the roadway for approximately 45 minutes Tuesday morning to allow time for crews to remove debris left by the collision.

At approximately 5:45 a.m., personnel from the Santa Barbara County Fire Department and Guadalupe Fire Department responded to the intersection of Brown Road and Highway 1.

The accident left one driver with very minor injuries, but he declined treatment, said Mike Eliason, a Santa Barbara County Fire Department spokesman. 

A driver and young child in a second vehicle were not injured.

In the third vehicle, a pregnant woman had moderate injuries and was transported by an AMR ambulance to Marian Regional Medical Center, Eliason said.

Her name and details on her condition were not available.

A CalStar medical helicopter initially was dispatched, but canceled before arriving.

The California Highway Patrol was investigating the crash.

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!
