Police were dispatched to the intersection of Montecito Boulevard and Benicia Drive at 10:17 a.m.

At the scene they found a Dodge Ram truck and a Toyota Prius that had crashed in the intersection as the Toyota was making a left turn onto westbound Montecito Boulevard.

The 85-year-old woman in the Prius was taken to a hospital with injuries that police described as “very serious.” The driver of the truck was identified as a 21-year-old Sonoma man.
