Santa Barbara County, CA: Two-Vehicle Truck Crash on Highway 1 in Orcutt
Santa Barbara County, California (April 20, 2018): The California Highway Patrol is conducting an active and ongoing investigation into a two-vehicle truck collision that unfolded in Orcutt, CA, yesterday morning, Thursday, April 19, 2018. Only limited information has been made available to the public while the investigation remains open.
The collision reportedly happened just before 10:00 a.m. when a box truck overturned after colliding with a pickup truck on Highway 1, just north of Solomon Road. While an official cause of the accident has not yet been determined, the box truck was reportedly carrying 50,000 pounds of cargo, making it difficult to maintain control after the collision. Reports do not provide an estimate of the extent of the damage, if any, to that property. An ambulance was dispatched to the scene and paramedics confirm that minor injuries were sustained, but the total number of victims was not revealed. No additional details have been provided at this time.
