Officer David Garcia crashed his personal car into a tree on a median in Lompoc around 12:45 a.m. Friday. The crash occurred on the 200 block of North H Street.
Garcia was off duty at the time.
The Lompoc Police Department turned the investigation over to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office in order to avoid a conflict of interest. The Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s Office will determine what charges to file.
