One person was transported to Lompoc Valley Medical Center on Thursday morning after a three-vehicle crash east of Lompoc.

Just before 8 a.m., personnel from Santa Barbara County Fire Department, Lompoc Fire Department, AMR and California Highway Patrol were dispatched to the crash on Highway 246, just east of Tularosa Road. 

One vehicle rolled over and ended up in roadway, while another wound up 100 feet over the side the road, county fire Capt. Dave Zaniboni said. 

A woman who was in one of the vehicles was transported to the Lompoc hospital for treatment of moderate injuries, Zaniboni added.

The CHP is investigating the cause of the crash.

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.
