SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

Santa Barbara Police are investigating a stabbing that sent one man to the hospital.

Police say a man showed up to Cottage Hospital around 12:20 a.m. on Sunday with multiple stab wounds. An officer who happened to be there started questioning him. Police say the incident happened along the 1100 block of East Mason Street.

The Santa Barbara Police Department is currently investigating a stabbing that occurred on the 1100 block of E. Mason Street.

Full press release from Santa Barbara Police Department:

On August 11, 2013 at 12:20 a.m., SBPD Officer Eric Rosenberg was completing a call for service at the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital Emergency Room when he saw a vehicle enter the ER parking lot at a high rate of speed and stop near the patient entrance.  An 18-year old male Santa Barbara resident exited the car, assisted by family and friends, and entered the facility.  Officer Rosenberg saw that the man was bleeding profusely from multiple stab wounds to his torso and was also suffering from blunt force injuries to his face.  Officer Rosenberg initiated an investigation into the incident which is still ongoing.  The crime scene was located on 1100 E.

    DUI Driver in Fatal Early Morning Accident Ordered to Detox Program in 1995

    The Santa Barbara woman arrested for DUI in the early morning accident that left three people dead early Monday morning has a lengthy court record out of Ventura County. Kimberly Kreis, 52, was ordered to serve 30 days in a detox program as far back as 1995.

    The car that Kreis was driving crashed into a disabled Mazda near the Castillo off-ramp of the southbound 101 freeway in Santa Barbara. Two 17 year old North Torrance High School students were killed in the accident- Jessica Leffew and Danielle Murillo. 20 year old Brian Lopez also died in the wreck. The driver of the Mazda, Eric August, is hospitalized in critical condition.

    A NewsChannel 3 investigation found records out of Ventrua County that appear to show that Greis has at least one prior conviction involving drugs and or alcohol, and in 1995 she was ordered to serve 30 days in a Cottage Hospital detox program.

    CHP investigators are still trying to piece together why the Mazda veered right into a guardrail, causing it to flip onto it's roof before coming to rest in the middle of the southbound freeway, which set into motion the deadly accident.

    CHP Officer Jonathan Guiterrez, said "A lot of things could have happened, He could have fallen asleep. We just don't know at this point."
