Crews Respond to Vehicle Crash at New Roundabout Near Santa Ynez

Car lands on its roof at the intersection of Highways 154 and 246, but no injuries reported

There was a vehicle accident Monday morning in the partially completed roundabout at the intersection of Highways 154 and 246.

The California Highway Patrol received a call of a vehicle on its roof in the roadway at 11:26 a.m. and responded to the scene along with Santa Barbara County Fire.

CHP officers were still en route as of 11:40 a.m., Officer John Ortega said.

A CalStar helicopter was initially called to the scene but the call changed to a non-injury accident, according to the CHP. 

The intersection in the Santa Ynez Valley was changed to a roundabout from a four-way stop and opened to traffic last week.

Daytime lane closures are ongoing as other parts of the construction project are completed, according to Caltrans.

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!
