Lou Ferrigno Killed in Auto Accident

Reports say beloved Lou Ferrigno was killed in a multi-vehicle crash between Santa Barbara and Goleta. He was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics responding to the vehicle accident and was identified by photo ID found on his body. Witnesses say a blue Ford F150 was seen driving recklessly just before the accident and was also seen speeding away after the accident.

A spokesperson for the Santa Barbaria Police Dept.told reporters that Mr. Ferrigno's vehicle rolled several times killing him instantly. They did not have a cause of the accident as of yet.

“We are investigating the cause of the accident and reports of a Ford pick-up truck that may have been involved. At this time we cannot determine a cause though alcohol does not seem to be a factor,” said police chief Rubio Torres.

The vehicle was believed to have been traveling at approximately 60 miles per hour in a 55mph zone at the time of the accident.

Witnesses have stated that Ferrigno's car was being tailgated for a few miles by the Ford truck and at one point passed Ferrigno and slammed on the brakes causing Ferrigno's vehicle to flip several times after hitting a center lane divider.

Police are asking anyone who witnessed the accident or those who may have a better description of the truck reportedly involved to please contact the police.

Additional details and information will be forthcoming as they become available.
