A teenager was arrested on DUI charges late Sunday night after the vehicle he was driving overturned on Highway 101 in Goleta, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Emergency personnel — including the CHP, Santa Barbara County firefighters, and an AMR ambulance — were dispatched at about 11:30 p.m. to the southbound freeway lanes near Los Carneros Road, Officer Jonathan Gutierrez said.

Upon arrival, they found the vehicle on its roof, with the driver nearby.

Investigation revealed that the 17-old-male driver was intoxicated, and he was taken into custody, Gutierrez said, adding that his name was being withheld because he is a juvenile.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash, Gutierrez said, and no injuries were reported.

The accident remained under investigation.

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!
