Responding officers went to Rosas’ house, but he wasn’t there.The officers said they eventually found him when they went back to the scene and saw that his hands, legs, and bare feet were covered in blood.

Rosas was transported to a nearby hospital, the report said, adding that “alcohol impairment is believed to be a factor in the collision.”
