A Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Deputy is recovering from minor injuries following a traffic accident in Santa Barbara.  The CHP says Deputy Anthony Kouremetis was southbound on the 101 Freeway near La Cumbre Road just after ten Monday night, when he lost control of his patrol car, traveled up an embankment, and hit a car on the freeway onramp.  The patrol car then overturned on the onramp.  Another deputy arriving on the scene was able to break out a window, and pull the injured officer out of the patrol unit.  The driver of the other car suffered minor injuries, but declined treatment.  The Sheriff’s Department hasn’t released the name of the deputy.
