A driver sustained moderate injuries Monday after their vehicle collided with an oil tanker truck that overturned near the intersection of Old Dominion and Orcutt Garey roads, spilling a small amount of crude and igniting a vegetation fire, according to the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.

The incident was reported shortly after 4:30 a.m. at the intersection nearly 4 miles east of Santa Maria, in the Sisquoc area, said Capt. Daniel Bertucelli.

Upon arrival, firefighters located the truck, which overturned and slid into a ditch, with the tanker elevated and perpendicular to the road.
