One person was injured Thursday night in a rollover vehicle accident on Highway 154, according to the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.

The crash occurred at about 7:30 p.m. on the 2700 block of Highway 154, near the summit of San Marcos Pass, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The Nissan SUV was eastbound on Highway 154 when it overturned several times and came to rest on its driver’s side, off the edge of the roadway, the CHP said.

The driver, whose name was not released, was the only person in the vehicle, said Mike Eliason, a Fire Department spokesman, and he was taken by AMR ambulance to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.

The crash was under investigation by the CHP.

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.
