Two people were injured Tuesday afternoon in a multi-vehicle accident near San Marcos High School, according to the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.

The collision, involving three vehicles, occurred at about 1:15 p.m. on Hollister Avenue at Magna Vista Street, east of Goleta, said fire Capt. David Sadecki.

One person suffered moderate injuries, and had to be extricated from a vehicle, Sadecki said, adding that the process took about 15 minutes.

That patient was taken to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.

Another patient suffered minor injuries, Sadecki said.

Details on the circumstances of the accident were not immediately available, but a witness told Noozhawk that at least one driver was being given a sobriety test.

The collision was under investigation by the California Highway Patrol.

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.
