Santa Barbara County Fire Captain David Sadeck said that a white Ford truck struck a pole and knocked down the power lines across the northbound and southbound lanes of the highway. The fire sparked due to this car accident was extinguished by fire fighters. The injured car driver was rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment.
It is not clear what caused this car accident and the cause of fire spark is also unknown. If it is found that this car accident occurred due to a mechanical fault‚ then the concerned automotive manufacturer might be held guilty for this car accident.
