Three people were hospitalized following a head-on collision Friday morning on Harris Grade Road.
About 11 a.m., Santa Barbara County Fire responded to a report of the two-vehicle crash. Upon arrival, they found two people trapped in one of the vehicles. The driver was already out of the second vehicle.
According to County Fire Capt. Dave Zaniboni, the passenger in one of the vehicles was able to get out of the wreck with help, but the driver required extrication using the Jaws of Life to prop the door open.
All three crash victims complained of minor injuries, and were transported by two AMR ambulances to Lompoc Hospital. A CALSTAR helicopter was initially dispatched, but was unable to fly due to weather.
Harris Grade was closed temporarily due to emergency equipment in the roadway. California Highway Patrol was on scene, and will continue to investigate the cause of the incident, Zaniboni said.
