3 Killed in Head-on Accident in Santa Barbara
Santa Barbara, CA (October 25, 2019) – Three people were killed in a head-on crash in Santa Barbara. The fatal accident occurred on the afternoon of October 25 on Highway 154.
Three vehicles were involved in a crash on Highway 154 near the Cold Spring Bridge. John Roderick Dungan, 28, of Santa Barbara was heading west in a Chevy Camaro when he crossed the double yellow line and collided head-on with a Chevy Volt driven by Rebecca Vanessa Goss Bley, 34, of Solvang.
A GMC then rear-ended the Volt and both caught fire. The crash caused a 2-acre brush fire, which was quickly contained.
The Camaro landed on the bridge. Dungan had to be rescued from the vehicle. He was airlifted to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. He is currently in critical condition.
Goss Bley was killed in the crash, as were her two children in the back seat of the car. A man and his son inside the Yukon were uninjured.
Our heartfelt condolences go out to the friends and loved ones of Rebecca Vanessa Goss Bley and the two other victims.
