Dayveonna Polk Merced Hit-and-Run Accident at R and 18th Streets

Dayveonna Polk killed Merced Hit-and-Run R and 18th Street

Dayveonna Polk, 3, Killed in Merced Hit-and-Run at R and 18th Streets

MERCED (December 5, 2017) – A child who died after an alleged hit-and-run accident at R and 18th streets Monday afternoon has been identified as Dayveonna Polk, according to Bakersfield Now.

Police said the 3-year-old girl was airlifted to an area trauma center where she later succumbed to her injuries.

As per the article, officials reported that Dayveonna Polk was walking with her mother and three other children when she was struck by a vehicle. They were in a crosswalk when the collision took place at around 3:40 p.m.

A surveillance video showed that the car stopped for the red light and turned left on R Street when the light changed to green. The driver then hit the young girl.

The motorist did not stop to render assistance and fled, leaving the 3-year-old unresponsive in the roadway. The vehicle, a late 90s purple Honda Accord with a raised tail fin and tinted back windows, was last seen heading through a parking lot following the incident.

The suspect, 22-year-old Livingston resident Isaac Maldonado, was arrested and is charged with gross vehicular manslaughter.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Officer McKeeman at (209) 388-7752, or the Merced Police Department Tipster Line at (209) 385-4725.


We offer our prayers and most heartfelt condolences to the family members of the innocent child and their friends during such a difficult time.


Wrongful Death Lawyer

In this case, it is evident that the motorist involved will be held fully responsible for causing the incident that led to the death of the young girl. Regardless of their reasons, leaving the area following a crash is a serious crime and is punishable by law, especially if the incident tragically killed another individual. We hope the suspect will be located and justice will then be served.

The family of the child has then the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault party who has evidently neglected the safety of others on the road. The claim will include a recompense for the funeral costs, loss of future income and loss of love and companionship. No monetary amount can replace the loss of a loved one, however, it is important that the surviving family is aware of their legal rights.

If your loved one has been a victim in an auto accident due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another party, we encourage you to call Johnson Attorneys Group and speak with our experienced wrongful death lawyer to help you. We will give our expertise to you case and get the justice you deserve. Contact us at 800-235-6801 free case consultation.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
