One person was taken to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital with moderate injuries following a head-on crash just south of the Highway 246/154 roundabout.
The crash occurred just after 9 a.m. Tuesday in an area where construction work is underway. According to Santa Barbara County Fire Capt. Dave Zaniboni, two cars collided head-on at a low rate of speed. However, that was enough force to injure one of the drivers who was taken to the hospital by ambulance.
Traffic was blocked in both directions of Highway 154 for about 20 minutes while crews cleared the roadway.
The California Highway Patrol is investigating the cause of the crash.
