Fairfield police have arrested a 22-year-old man for allegedly causing the death of a passenger in his car in January. Joshua Marquise Crouseite, of Fairfield, was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter in connection with the Jan. 30 crash in the 700 block of Cement Hill Road, police said. Crouseite was driving a 1988 Chevrolet Celebrity in the westbound lane of Cement Hill Road near Gulf Drive around 3:50 a.m. The car struck a tree, killing 21-year-old Steve Mann, of Fairfield. The car was in flames when police arrived but citizens had already managed to pull both men from the vehicle, Sgt. Randall Boggs said. Mann was pronounced dead at the scene and Crouseite suffered major injuries and was taken to the University of California at Davis Medical Center. Boggs said Crouseite’s blood alcohol level was above the legal limit of 0.08 percent at the time of the crash. He was booked at Solano County Jail.
