Rosa Rivas Involved in Pedestrian Accident on Highway 101 Near Arroyo Quemada Lane
GOLETA, CA (February 2, 2021) — Rosa Rivas, involved in a pedestrian accident on Highway 101 near Arroyo Quemada Lane, is working with investigators on how Wednesday’s crash occurred.
According to the California Highway Patrol, the pedestrian accident happened around 2:45 p.m.
For unknown reasons, a woman believed to be 35 years old entered the southbound traffic lane after standing next to her vehicle. From there, multiple oncoming cars took evasive action. However, a 2015 Freightliner tractor-trailer in the No. 2 lane was unable to stop in time.
As a result, 52-year-old Rivas, driving the big rig, struck the woman.
Soon after, firefighters and deputies responded to the scene and closed the southbound lanes. Paramedics followed shortly after and treated the unidentified pedestrian before bringing her to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.
However, since the cause of the accident demands further investigation, anyone with information should contact CHP at 805-967-1234.
