Crash Closes Main Entrance to Vandenberg Air Force Base


The main entrance to Vandenberg Air Force Base was closed temporarily Friday morning due to a vehicle crash, according to 30th Space Wing Facebook page.

Details about the crash near the Santa Maria Gate Highway 1 and California Boulevard were not provided.

Lt. William Collette, a Vandenberg spokesman, said he could not provide details on the crash, requesting questions be emailed and information could be cleared with his boss.

He also could not say how long the main entrance would be closed.

“I don’t run the Santa Maria Gate so I don’t know,” Collette said. 

People entering and exiting the base were urged to use the Lompoc Gate, off Santa Lucia Canyon Road, or the Solvang Gate, on 13th Street via Ocean Avenue.

For more information, contact the visitor center at 606-7662.

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!
