Auto wrecks snarl traffic along Highways 101, 166 on Sunday

Crashes affected traffic along two major San Luis Obispo County highways for a time Sunday.

Highway 166 just east of Rock Front — straddling the San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara county lines — was reopened by 5:45 p.m. after a wreck about 4:15 p.m. that caused minor injuries, according to the CHP.

At least one person was taken to Marian Medical Center in Santa Maria after a black sport-utility vehicle ended up on its side following a rollover.

Along Highway 101, northbound lanes were blocked for a time after a rollover crash about 6:30 p.m. just south of Santa Rosa Road in Atascadero.

The black sedan involved ended up on its wheels, and at least one person was taken to Twin Cities Community Hospital in Templeton, according to the CHP.

That crash also caused minor injuries, the CHP said. The highway was reported cleared by 7:15 p.m.

No other information was available about either crash.
