SANTA MARIA, Calif. (June 4, 2018) — Two people suffered serious injuries in a solo rollover crash Sunday on Highway 166, just east of Tepusquet Road, according to Noozhawk.
The crash took place about 10:20 p.m. on June 3. The Santa Barbara County Fire Department responded to the scene where the SUV wound up down a hillside on its roof about 100 feet from the highway.
Firefighters and members of the U.S. Forest Service extricated two people who were trapped in the vehicle and hoisted them up to the roadway using a law-angle rope system.
One person suffered major injuries and was airlifted by Calstar helicopter to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. The second person had moderate injuries. They were transported by ambulance to Marian Regional Medical Center in Santa Maria.
