3:05 K-9 on scene. Suspect believed to be injured, based on blood in car. Should provide a good track for the K-9.

Likely drunk and didn't want to get caught. I wonder if they found him. JB86 is right.

Update; CHP identified the suspect in the felony hit-and-run but did not locate him, providing info to SBPD for follow-up. CHP reopened the call at around 11:00 am Saturday after the suspect's phone pinged in Goleta. Sheriffs were advised. A resident reported someone yelling 'I can't walk' in that vicinity (near 895 Cambridge in an open-space). Unknown the rest of the story...I would expect they apprehended the suspect, but do not know.
