The accident occurred at approximately 12:45 p.m., when a Chevrolet sedan, driven by a 24-year-old female motorist, and a big-rig crashed head-on on Highway 166 approximately 50 miles east of Highway 101.
Emergency crews were dispatched to the scene and had to extricate the female driver from the sedan. The woman sustained moderate to severe injuries and was airlifted to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. The driver of big-rig sustained no injuries, according to Santa Barbara Fire Capt. Dave Zaniboni
The semi was transporting a full tank of oil at the time, however, there was no spillage. An empty tanker was called in to transfer the oil to another big-rig due to the extensive damage caused by the collision. An investigation is ongoing to determine the cause of the accident.
