A Fairfield man arrested for the hit-and-run death of a pedestrian on Peabody Road in unincorporated Solano County on Wednesday posted bail and is scheduled to be arraigned Jan. 2.

Alex Perez Jr., 23, is suspected of striking Fairfield resident Moses Sala, 28, as he drove his 2012 Chevrolet Silverado pickup south on Peabody Road north of Chuck Hammond Drive, California Highway Patrol Officer Chris Parker said. Sala was walking south on the road.

Fairfield police informed the CHP at 8:52 a.m. that they were at the scene of a fatal collision involving a pedestrian, Parker said.

Sala's body was found just off the west edge of Peabody Road. Investigators believe the collision happened several hours before the body was discovered, Parker said.

Debris collected at the scene led the CHP to a Vacaville address where the Chevrolet was found and Perez was interviewed, Parker said.

Perez was then arrested on suspicion of hit-and-run and booked into the Solano County jail.
