Santa Barbara, California (October 25, 2019) – A woman and two children were killed in a car accident on Highway 154 in Santa Barbara on Friday afternoon.

The deadly collision occurred at about 4:54 p.m. on Highway 154 near Cathedral Oaks Road and the Cold Spring Bridge, according to a local news source.

A man was reportedly driving a Camaro westbound on the roadway when it drifted into the opposite lanes and collided head-on with a sedan occupied by a woman and two children.

An SUV that was traveling behind the sedan was also involved in the accident.

The collision sparked a brush fire which burned about two acres before it was contained.

The three occupants of the sedan were killed in the collision. The identities of the deceased were not immediately disclosed.

A man in the Camaro had to be extricated before being flown to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

No further information was provided.

An investigation to determine the cause of the accident is ongoing.

Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
