Police Have Not Released Information About A Rollover Crash On Highway 101

A rollover crash can be a terrifying experience for anyone. During such a collision, there is a  complete loss of control and a significantly increased chance of someone being very seriously hurt.  Some might assume that a rollover crash is mainly limited to SUVs and other vehicles with a high center of gravity. It does not matter if you are driving an SUV, a tractor-trailer rig, or a passenger vehicle; the truth is that any vehicle has the potential to roll over.

Station KSBY in San Luis Obisbo reported on its website that a single-vehicle rollover crash happened in the Santa Ynez Valley along Highway 101 near Los Alamos early Thursday morning. 

According to a statement released by the California Highway Patrol (CHP), the crash happened at approximately 5:45 AM in the southbound lanes of Highway 101 when the driver of a pickup truck rolled over into the center median.  

Currently, the details surrounding the cause of the rollover crash are still unknown. The driver seemed to be driving the appropriate direction, and authorities have not yet divulged if alcohol may have been involved. One can presume that high speeds and overcorrective driving maneuvers may have been likely contributing factors to the rollover crash.

In the report, the CHP did not release any information. The driver’s identity has not yet been released. So far, authorities have not stated whether or not anyone was hurt in the crash or their current condition.

No further details were available at the time of the report.
