The driver of an SUV sustained minor injuries Thursday in a rollover accident on Highway 101 in Goleta.

The crash occurred at about 10:45 a.m. on the southbound freeway onramp at Los Carneros Road, according to Capt. Dave Zaniboni of the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.

The driver, a man in his mid- to late-20s, lost control of his Dodge Durango while getting on the freeway, Zaniboni said.

The vehicle went about 20 feet down an embankment and came to rest on its side, Zaniboni said, adding that extensive extrication was required to free the driver from the wreckage.

The victim, whose name was not released, was taken by AMR ambulance to Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital, Zaniboni said.

The freeway remained open after the crash, but traffic was slowed in the area.

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!
