The San Francisco District Attorney's Office today charged a 22-year-old San Francisco man with vehicular manslaughter in connection with a Tuesday morning accident that killed two men.
Richard Gosnell is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday morning in San Francisco Superior Court.
Police say Gosnell was the driver of a stolen Saturn sedan that ran a red light at a Haight-Ashbury intersection and struck a red Chevrolet, killing its two occupants.
The victims were Mill Valley resident Kristopher Bratt, 20, and Alfonzo Felipe Cortez, 36.
Gosnell will be charged with two felony counts of vehicular manslaughter as well as four other felony counts and one misdemeanor count, according to the district attorney's office.
The only passenger in Gosnell's car, 22-year-old Joshua Wilson, has not yet been charged pending additional investigation into the accident, according to the district attorney's office.
The accident occurred after police spotted the Saturn and discovered it had been reported stolen, San Francisco Police Sgt. Steve Mannina said.
The officers attempted to stop the vehicle but Gosnell continued to travel eastbound on Page Street, Mannina said. He allegedly ran a red light at Divisadero and Page streets and slammed into the victims' red Chevrolet.
Gosnell's arraignment time will be announced Thursday morning, the district attorney's office said.
