A pedestrian was hit by a vehicle and killed on Highway 101 in Goleta early Friday, according to the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.
At 1:48 a.m., a car, reportedly an Uber passenger vehicle, hit the male pedestrian in the northbound lanes about a quarter-mile south of Fairview Avenue, fire Capt. Scott Safechuck said.
The pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene.
The California Highway Patrol is investigating the collision, and no further details were available Friday morning.
In the Santa Ynez Valley Friday morning, the CHP Buellton Office reported a wrong-way driving collision on Highway 154 at Roblar Avenue.
Around 5 a.m., officers responded to the call of a wrong-way driver in the area and “the vehicle subsequently collided with another vehicle.”
No injuries were reported in that crash, and the alleged wrong-way driver was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, the CHP said.
The name of the driver was not available.
