In the report, CHP says the driver of a 2016 black Mercedes S550, identified as 53-year-old Los Angeles resident Jensen Buchanan, a soap opera actress, was traveling eastbound on Highway 154 when she allowed her car to drift across the solid double yellow line, and directly into the path of a white Ford C-Max.
Both drivers were taken to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital by ambulance. Buchanan was treated for minor injuries while the driver of the Ford, 56-year-old Camarillo resident Bradley Asolas, was treated for major injuries.
Highway 154 was closed down for nearly 20 minutes as a result of the collision.
Buchanan was arrested following the accident for possible DUI, according to authorities.
In recent months, she has appeared on The Young and the Restless as Elise Moxley. Her previous soap stints include Another World (as Vicky Hudson), One Life to Live (as Sarah Gordon Buchanan) and General Hospital (as Melissa Bedford).
