FAIRFIELD — The man accused in a fatal hit-and-run accident late last year turned himself in Monday and has posted bail.
Alex Perez, 23, of Vacaville, surrendered to authorities around 6:30 p.m. after charges were filed Friday in connection to a December accident on Peabody Road between Fairfield and Vacaville.
He posted the $120,000 bail and was released, according to Solano County jail booking logs.
Perez is charged with three felonies and one special circumstance related to the death of Moses Sala, 28, of Fairfield, who was walking along Peabody Road late Dec. 4, 2012. Sala was hit on the side of the road as he was walking to deliver medication to his disabled father, his family said.
Charges include felony gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, felony DUI causing injury and felony leaving the scene of an accident. The second charge carries a special circumstance of causing gross bodily injury, said Solano County District Attorney Don du Bain.
Du Bain said investigators arranged for the surrender at the jail office. Du Bain said the court set the bail amount, so he had no comment.
It is unknown when Perez will be arraigned, du Bain said.
Mary Nguyen, deputy district attorney, said Perez was previously convicted for an October 2012 drunk in public offense, a misdemeanor.
