A driver suffered moderate injuries Monday afternoon after a single-vehicle rollover accident on northbound Highway 101 just south of the Nojoqui Summit, authorities said. 

Responders from the California Highway Patrol, Santa Barbara County Fire Department and American Medical Response headed to the scene just after 4 p.m. and found a vehicle on its roof in one of the northbound lanes, fire Capt. Dave Zaniboni said. 

One person was inside and complained of moderate injuries, so was transported to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital by ambulance, Zaniboni said. 

The CHP is investigating the cause of the rollover. 

One lane of the highway was briefly closed during the emergency response, Zaniboni said.

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!
