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.
