DUI Suspected Samantha Hoobyar Arrested after Two-Car Crash on Alamo Pintado Road in Santa Ynez Valley

Santa Ynez Valley, CA (July 21, 2021)– On Tuesday, a criminal complaint filed in Santa Maria Superior Court charged a 31-year-old Samantha Hoobyar with a felony count of driving under the influence of drugs causing injury, and misdemeanor willful cruelty to a child.

The crash happened on May 21 in the 1400 block of Alamo Pintado Road.

Reportedly, emergency personnel was dispatched shortly after 3:10 p.m. on May 21 for a two-vehicle crash.

CHP said Hoobyar drove a GMC south on Alamo Pintado Road south of Adobe Canyon Road while Angelo Caciola, 69, of Ballard also drove an Alfa Romeo north on Alamo Pintado Road. 

Hoobyar failed to safely navigate around a right-hand curve in the road, causing the GMC vehicle to continue straight and cross over the double yellow lines into the northbound lane. The front right of the GMC collided into the front right of the Alfa Romeo.

As a result, Hoobyar as well as an 8-year-old girl in her vehicle, and Krisanne Caciola, a passenger in the Alfa Romeo, all were transported to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital for treatment of minor to moderate injuries.

On the day of the crash, police arrested Hoobyar on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs causing injury, and CHP officers recommended filing criminal charges.

She had been released on bail and ordered back to court Wednesday. 

Further investigation is ongoing.
