Sacramento Pedestrian Wrongful Death

Sacramento Pedestrian Wrongful Death

Sacramento Pedestrian Wrongful Death. Recently, light was shed on a Sacramento pedestrian wrongful death when the man suspected of causing a hit-and-run accident, involving a 14-year-old boy, gave himself up to local authorities. The surrender ended a search for the driver who struck and killed De’Sean Rowe-Manns in September. It happened as the teenager walked his bicycle in the bike lane, while on his way to school, along Watt Avenue close to Whitney Avenue. It was reported that the young man was struck by a driver of an SUV and landed on the hood of the vehicle, which carried Rowe-Mans for a few blocks until the driver stopped and laid the boy on the grass. At this point, the driver fled the scene without offering assistance or phoning for emergency help. Rowe-Manns was transported to UC Davis Medical Center and died there after suffering numerous broken bones and hemorrhaging from his spine.

Camp Fire

Camp Fire

Camp Fire — The Camp Fire became a haunting reminder of the effect that low humidity, parched earth, and high winds have during fire season. Months after the Carr Fire destroyed over 1,600 structures and burned 229,651 acres, the even more destructive Camp Fire erupted in the area of Feather River Canyon on November 9. It was located near Highway 70 on Camp River Road. As of Sunday, November 11, 23 individuals have died in the fire, and authorities are still searching for 100 more who are missing. As a wildfire attorney, I am well aware of the destructive force of a fire. As your neighbor in Northern California, I share your grief for those who died. I would like to offer my condolences to the families and friends of the decedents who are facing a devastating loss.
