After one vehicle loses control, it collides with a semi-truck causing the truck hauling gravel, to hit the center divider and spill the load on north and southbound lanes on the Highway 101 near the Highway 1 intersection. According to Santa Barbara’s Noozhawk, an Audi was in the fast lane on southbound Highway 101 passing the 18-wheeler, two-trailer gravel truck. CHP say the car’s driver lost control for unknown reasons and collided with the left rear tire of the semi. Witnesses of the accident stopped on the right shoulder to offer help when, for unknown reasons, a tow truck driver approaching the scene lost control and collided into both of their vehicles  parked on the side of the road.

No injuries have been reported. All southbound lanes and all but one northbound lane were closed for hours while crews had to clean up gravel and clear damaged vehicles from the road.

CHP are still investigating the cause of these collisions.
