Rollover Crash Slows Highway 101 Northbound

Lane Closed South of Storke for One Hour During Morning Commute

A rolled car brought traffic to a crawl Tuesday morning south of Storke Road on northbound Highway 101.

A three-car crash that rolled a silver sedan shut northbound Highway 101 down to one lane until just before 9 a.m. Tuesday. Around 7:52 a.m., law enforcement officials responded to the accident just south of Storke Road, said County Fire Captain David Zaniboni.

The sedan’s lone driver, described as a 25-year-old female, suffered “minor injuries” and was taken to Goleta Valley hospital. A male driver of another car was evaluated on scene for minor injuries. Authorities directed commuters to one northbound lane just south of the Storke exit. Zaniboni reported “a lot of traffic and congestion in the area,” where CHP officers were investigating on scene.
