Two people were transported to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital with moderate injuries after a two-vehicle collision and rollover on Highway 154 at Windy Gap, according to County Fire. 

The County Fire Department, California Highway Patrol and AMR ambulances responded just after 5 p.m. to a collision on the highway and found one vehicle rolled over onto its roof, County Fire Capt. Dave Zaniboni said. 

One patient was trapped inside the vehicle and had to be extricated.

Two people were transported to the hospital by ambulance and the CHP is investigating the cause of the collision, Zaniboni said.

Highway 154 was temporarily blocked in both directions near Painted Cave Road while crews worked to investigate and tow the vehicles out of the way.
