Hit-and-Run Wreck Sends One Person to Hospital


Collision involving four vehicles occurred near the Earl Warren Showgrounds, according to Santa Barbara Police

One person was hospitalized Thursday night in a hit-and-run accident near the Earl Warren Showgrounds, according to the Santa Barbara Police Department.

The collision, involving four vehicles, occurred shortly before 9:30 p.m. at Calle Real and Las Positas Road, said Sgt. Dave Henderson

Three vehicles were stopped westbound on Las Positas at Calle Real when a fourth vehicle slammed into the back of the line, Henderson said.

That vehicle then fled the scene, Henderson said, but he did not have details on the make and model.

One person was transported to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, Henderson said.

Witnesses told Noozhawk that two other people suffered minor injuries but were not hospitalized.

Further details were not available late Thursday night.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
