CHP and Santa Barbara County Fire loading liquid oxygen off tanker

The Santa Barbara County Fire Department and the California Highway Patrol are loading 3500 gallons of liquid oxygen from one truck to another truck.

Officers got to the scene at Highway 1 and Highway 101 in the Lompoc area just before 5 p.m. Thursday.

Firefighters say a tanker was damaged in a rear-ending accident on Thursday morning. It isn't safe to drive, so officers are using another tanker to move the liquid oxygen out of the area.

Firefighters say it should take about an hour.

Two people had minor injuries following the rear-end accident Thursday morning.
