CITRUS HEIGHTS—A man convicted a decade ago for the traffic death of a Folsom prison correctional officer was involved in another crash on Thursday, August 14 that injured another driver.
Citrus Heights Police arrested Scott Richard St. Pierre on August 17, 2014 for evading a police officer and resisting arrest. Police spotted St. Pierre, 39, who had an outstanding felony warrant from Placer County, in a vehicle at 10 p.m. on Thursday, August 14. St. Pierre had been arrested on November 13 on charges of transportation of a controlled substance. He began driving evasively in Citrus Heights and a short pursuit continued onto Madison Avenue, and then into the unincorporated part of the county on Auburn Boulevard.
Driving south on Auburn Boulevard, St. Pierre’s vehicle hit another vehicle near Winding Way, according to Citrus Heights Lt. Jason Russo. St. Pierre was arrested at the scene. The driver of the other vehicle was transported to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
In 2004, St. Pierre was sentenced to state prison for 10 years for the death in Roseville of a Folsom prison correctional officer who was on his way to work. St. Pierre received the sentence after pleading no contest to a felony charge of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.
St. Pierre’s car collided on Blue Oaks Boulevard on March 17, 2004 with a vehicle driven by Jerry Carldean Walker, 47, a Lincoln resident and Folsom prison correctional officer who was on his way to work at 9:25 p.m.
St. Pierre, then 28, had been arrested earlier that same day in Sacramento County on suspicion of driving while intoxicated after his car was involved in a non-injury accident on Highway 50. It was later learned that he was driving with a suspended license during both incidents.
St. Pierre was booked into Sacramento County Jail early Friday morning, August 18 with his bail set at $650,000.
