A woman involved in a single-vehicle accident in Lompoc was airlifted to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital on Wednesday.

Her SUV slammed into a streetlight pole on the 1000 block of North O Street at approximately 11 a.m., according to Lompoc police Sgt. Kevin Martin.

In addition to police, personnel from the Lompoc Fire Department were dispatched to the scene.

Martin said witnesses told police the driver slowed down the vehicle prior to the crash, hinting at a possible medical emergency as the cause.

A Calstar medical helicopter took the woman, reportedly in her upper 40s, to Cottage Hospital for treatment of moderate injuries.

Her name and details on her condition were not available.

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.
