Man Killed in Stockton Pedestrian Accident
A man was killed in a recent Stockton pedestrian accident. The incident occurred shortly after 5:00 in the morning along East Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. A pedestrian attempted to cross the street when he was hit by an eastbound Ford Explorer SUV in the No. 1 Lane. The motorist stayed at the scene and cooperated with authorities conducting the investigation. The pedestrian was transported to the hospital where he was later pronounced deceased. The San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office has identified the decedent as Candido Gomez, a 55-year-old resident of Stockton. I would like to send my healing thoughts and prayers to the loved ones of Mr. Gomez in their time of loss.
