A suspect is in custody at the Sacramento County Jail charged with gross vehicular manslaughter and drunk driving for a vehicle accident last month in Elk Grove that resulted in one fatality.

The suspect, 39-year old Nath Rajnel (pictured above), was arrested by the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department after an investigation by Elk Grove Police and booked into the jail on Tuesday afternoon. Rajnel is facing one misdemeanor and three felony charges for the July 8 rush hour accident that led to three injuries and the death of 63-year old Elk Grove resident, Jeffrey Fields.

The accident occurred on Laguna Boulevard at Laugna Crest Drive and involved seven vehicles. At the time of the accident, witnesses said the vehicle being driven by Fields was reportedly rear-ended in stop and go traffic by an SUV being driven at a high rate of speed by Rajnel.

Rajnel is being held on a $450,000 bail and is scheduled for arraignment this afternoon.
