A driver was using his cell phone when he struck and killed a man in Napa in 2022.
According to the Napa Police Department, Peter Orrfelt, 53, was charged by the Napa County District Attorney’s Office with felony vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence.
The crash occurred on May 19, 2022, at 6:48 p.m. at the intersection of Jefferson Street.
The victim was 78-year-old Raul Gudino, who was walking his dog when the crash happened.
Orrfelt remained at the scene and cooperated with the police after the crash.
Gudino died at a hospital.
“Distracted driving by using a cellular device was determined to be a factor in this collision,” NPD said. “Orrfelt was found to be at fault in the collision, violating the California Vehicle Code, resulting in the death of Gudino.”
Orrfelt was arrested on Tuesday and booked into the Napa County Department of Corrections.
