The California Highway Patrol had arrested a Napa 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.
