A woman is said to be in critical condition after her 2013 Honda Civic went over the side of Highway 101 in the Los Alamos area Tuesday morning.
It happened shortly before 7:15 a.m. in the northbound lanes of the highway two miles north of Highway 154. California Highway Patrol says 27-year-old Aubriana Aguirre was driving at an undetermined speed when she veered to the right and collided with a large oak tree.
The Santa Barbara County Fire Department says Aguirre, who was the only person in the vehicle, had to be extricated from the vehicle. Crews were attempting to transport her to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital via helicopter at 8 a.m.
The cause of the crash is under investigation by CHP and drugs, or alcohol is not suspected as contributing factors to this crash.
