SOLANO COUNTY, Calif. (BCN) – The California Highway Patrol on Friday arrested a man in connection with a fatal collision that occurred last week in Solano County.
Marcos Manuel Guzman, 47, was initially arrested on suspicion of DUI and driving with a suspended license on March 12.
On Friday, he was rearrested on suspicion of felony hit-and-run and gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated after the CHP linked him to a fatal hit-and-run collision that had occurred on the same night of his initial arrest.
On March 12 at 6:42 p.m., the CHP was notified of a possible DUI driver on Abernathy Road and Mankas Corner Road.
Responding officers located a Lexus with front-end damage on Rockville Road, and the driver, identified as Guzman, was arrested.
At the time, officers were not aware Guzman was involved in a collision with another vehicle.
The next morning, the CHP was notified of a fatal hit-and-run collision that had occurred on Abernathy Road north of Andrews Lane.
The victim, a 60-year-old man, had been riding an ATV when he was struck by a passing vehicle, according to the CHP.
Investigators were able to link the hit-and-run to the damage that had occurred to the suspect’s vehicle.
Guzman, who had been released following his initial arrest, was rearrested on Friday in connection with the fatal hit-and-run.
