A woman was taken to the hospital Sunday after a single-vehicle crash on Highway 101 near Garden Street, according to the Santa Barbara Fire Department.

The wreck occurred at about 8:45 a.m. in the southbound lanes between the Garden Street entrance ramp and the Milpas Street exit ramp, fire Battalion Chief Robert Mercado said.

He said it appeared the woman’s car, which had major damage, struck the center divider.

The woman was taken by American Medical Response ambulance to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital with minor to moderate injuries, Mercado said.

Her name and details on her condition were not available.

The left and center lanes of the freeway were blocked while emergency personnel tended to the woman and removed the wreckage.

The lanes were reopened about an hour after the crash, according to the California Highway Patrol, which was investigating the incident.

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!
