A Rohnert Park man charged with vehicular manslaughter in connection with the death of his mother in a crash last month failed to appear for his arraignment this morning in Sonoma County Superior Court.Judge Elliot Daum issued a $210,000 arrest warrant for Ryan Crowder but stayed execution of it until Monday morning.Crowder, 22, was seriously injured in the Sept. 10 crash that killed 42-year-old Alma Crowder and injured his brother Jesse Crowder.Crowder’s 1996 Toyota Sienna crashed head-on into a minivan driven by Donna Brockwell, 58, of Santa Rosa, on Stony Point Road, the California Highway Patrol said. Brockwell and her 5-year-old grandson were also injured.Ryan Crowder has been charged with gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, DUI, driving under the influence of cocaine and methamphetamine and driving on a suspended license, Deputy District Attorney Robert Waner said. The CHP arrested Crowder at his home Tuesday. Crowder, still suffering from a broken pelvis and other injuries, was taken to Sutter Medical Center for a medical evaluation, but Sonoma County Jail personnel were not prepared to book Crowder because of his medical condition and he was cited to appear in court today, Waner said. “There was some confusion at the jail and they tried to resolve it by citing him to appear today,” Waner said this morning.”He was medically cleared by Sutter,” Waner said.Deputy Public Defender Scott Murray asked Daum to stay execution of the arrest warrant until Crowder’s medical condition can be determined. Murray said Crowder has to be transported by ambulance.Crowder will have another medical evaluation before he is booked on the charges, Waner said.Daum said he will issue the arrest warrant Monday, pending updated information on Crowder’s medical condition.
