Santa Barbara County Woman Killed In Farm Vehicle Traffic Accident

Posted on Monday, June 16, 2014 12:54pm


A Santa Barbara woman is dead, after she apparently lost control of a small farm utility vehicle, and it overturned.

The CHP says Holly Eve Brooks was driving the small four wheel utility vehicle on private property on the 1900 block of Highway 246, in Buellton when it crashed.

Investigators say the vehicle left the main road, and went onto an embankment, leading to the accident early Saturday morning.

A passenger was able to jump from the passenger’s seat to safety as it started to roll, but the 54 year old Buellton woman was trapped underneath.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.
