Injuries Caused by Santa Barbara Traffic Accidents
SANTA BARBARA, CA (February 8, 2019) – Injuries were sustained after two separate crashes on Highway 101 in Santa Barbara.
A motorcycle rider traveling south on Highway 101 collided into a rear of a vehicle about 6:40 p.m. on February 6. The CHP revealed that the rider was weaving in and out of lanes at a high rate of speed before the collision.
The incident occurred in the number one lane. Due to the crash, traffic was stalled from the State Street exit all the way down to the Patterson exit on the 101.
The crash left the motorcyclist with injuries.
Meanwhile, the second collision between three vehicles occurred about 6:15 p.m. Wednesday on Highway 217 and the Patterson on-ramp heading northbound on U.S. Highway 101.
By 6:23 a.m., fire officials blocked all the lanes. Injuries were also sustained in the collision. Severe damages were also sustained to the vehicles.
Due to the collision, traffic delays were expected but at 7:20 p.m., the traffic eased up.
Weaving in and out of lanes is dangerous. Always stay at your lane and be aware of the presence of other motorists around you. Pay attention and consider small vehicles like motorcycles and bicycles because these are more prone to road accidents than bigger vehicles.
