Woman Critically Injured When Struck by Vehicle While Jaywalking Across H Street in Lompoc

A woman was airlifted to a Santa Barbara hospital Friday night after being struck by a vehicle while jaywalking across a street in Lompoc, according to the Lompoc Police Department.

The victim was hit by a 2-door coupe at about 9:25 p.m. while attempting to cross from the west side to the east, outside of a crosswalk, on the 1600 block of North H Street, police said.

The woman, whose name was not released, was critically injured when she was struck by a northbound vehicle, and she was taken by a Calstar medical helicopter to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, police said.

Details on her condition were not available.

The driver was released after he was evaluated and found not to be under the influence of any intoxicating substances, police said.

He was not cited, police said, adding that the accident remained under investigation.

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.
