A Bakersfield woman is facing felony DUI charges stemming from a collision in Carpinteria Sunday afternoon in which she allegedly struck two pedestrians with her vehicle, according to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department.

Deputies responded at about 3:30 p.m. Sunday to the intersection of Linden Avenue and Ninth Street, where they found two women — a 50-year-old and a 91-year-old, both from Carpinteria — who had been seriously injured, said Sgt. Jarrett Morris.

They were treated at the scene by AMR paramedics and Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District personnel and transported to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.

One suffered major injuries and the other had moderate injuries, Morris said.

Their names and details on their conditions were not released.

Stacielynn Sandrini, 50, was the driver of the vehicle, Morris said.

“During the course of the investigation, deputies believed suspected Sandrini had been consuming alcoholic beverages,” Morris said.

Sandrini was arrested for felony driving under the influence of alcohol causing injuries. She was booked into the Santa Barbara County Jail, with bail set at $100,000.

“Due to the significant injuries sustained, deputies from the sheriff’s Major Accident Response Team responded to conduct the accident portion of the investigation,” Morris noted.

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!
