Woman Hospitalized After Rollover Wreck in Santa Barbara

Crash occurred late Wednesday night on Alameda Padre Serra, on the Riviera above the city

A woman was seriously injured late Wednesday night in a rollover crash on the Riviera, according to the Santa Barbara Police Department.

The accident on Alameda Padre Serra occurred at about 10:40 p.m., said fire Battalion Chief Robert Mercado.

An SUV was westbound on Alameda Padre Serra when it struck an embankment "at a pretty significant rate of speed" near De La Guerra Road and overturned, coming to rest on its roof, Mercado said.

Responding firefighters found a female passenger in the roadway with moderate injuries, Mercado said, and she was taken to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.

Her name and details on her injuries were not available.

The male driver of the vehicle, whose name was not released, was not hurt, Mercado said,

He subsequently was arrested on suspicion of felony DUI, according to Lt. Todd Stoney of the Santa Barbara Police Department.

Additional details 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.

Thanks for asking!
