A single-vehicle crash left a driver with minor injuries and slowed traffic in Orcutt on Wednesday afternoon, according to the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.

Emergency crews were dispatched just before 5 p.m. to the incident on Clark Avenue near Kenneth Avenue in Orcutt, said fire Capt. Dave Zaniboni.

Firefighters found a pickup truck that had tipped onto its side and came to rest against a tree after the driver lost control, Zaniboni said.

The driver, a 50-year-old man whose name wasn’t released, was taken by ambulance to Marian Regional Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries, Zaniboni said. 

One lane was closed for a time on Clark Avenue, slowing down traffic on the busy roadway.

The California Highway Patrol will investigate the incident.

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!
