The California Highway Patrol is looking for a suspect they said caused a major crash that turned deadly over the weekend. It happened on Highway 101 north of Clark Avenue around 3:45 a.m. Saturday. A 10-year-old was thrown from one of the cars and was hit by another vehicle. Investigators said the car that caused accident was abandoned on scene, and the one that hit the girl didn't stop. Officers said 25-year-old Antonio Betancourt caused the crash. Rob Wallace, C.H.P., said, "We're putting together a statewide effort to be on the lookout for the suspect. We're also preparing an arrest warrant so when he is apprehended he can be extradited and brought to the county to face his charges." Officers said Betancourt is originally from the Santa Maria area. They said the other vehicle may not have even realized they hit the little girl.
