Two Santa Barbara Police Officers Injured In Collision

Posted on Saturday, July 6, 2013 8:30am

Two Santa Barbara Police officers are recovering from minor injuries, after a vehicle driven by a man later arrested on DUI charges slammed into their vehicle.

It happened just after 11 p.m., on the Fourth of July.

The officers had just left the Santa Barbara County Jail, and were headed southbound on El Sueno when a vehicle coming off the 101 Freeway failed to negotiate the curve.  It slammed into the SUV they were driving, causing the police vehicle to hit another vehicle.

No one was seriously injured.

CHP investigators say the driver of the car which triggered the accident, Jason Hunter of Goleta, was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury.
