A motorcyclist was critically injured Friday afternoon in a crash on State Street in downtown Santa Barbara.

The three-wheeled motorcycle was northbound on State from Carrillo Street when it veered across the roadway, said Sgt. Joshua Morton of the Santa Barbara Police Department.

The vehicle struck the curb and a tree, then overturned onto the rider, Morton said.

The victim, whose name was not released, was taken to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital with major injuries, Morton said.

As of 6 p.m., State Street remained closed between Carrillo and Figueroa Street while police investigated the accident.

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!
