GOLETA, Calif. - The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office is hoping to learn more information about the man arrested in connection with a deadly hit-and-run in Goleta.

The sheriff's office said Tuesday that it was still actively investigating the deadly crash.

It happened on Sunday, February 9 along Cathedral Oaks Road.
