Officers say unsafe speeds led to a traffic collision Tuesday night that sent two cars over the side of the road and into a creek.
The California Highway Patrol says around 6:12 p.m., a 53-year-old man from Santa Maria was driving on Highway 101 North, just south of Highway 1 near the Gaviota tunnel.
They say another pick-up truck was driving too fast, and spun out of control. The truck hit the car with the man from Santa Maria.
Both cars went over the side of the road and fell about 60 feet into the creek below.
One person was taken to a local hospital for chest pain.
No arrests were made.
One lane of Highway 101 was closed for more than two hours while the vehicles were removed.
