DeSean Rowe-Manns Arden Arcade hit-and-run bicycle accident Watt Avenue Sacramento County

Hit-and-run driver leaves boy critically injured on Watt Ave

De'Sean Rowe-Manns Hit-and-Run Accident Arden-Arcade on Watt AvenueSACRAMENTO COUNTY, Calif. (Sept. 20, 2018) — DeSean Rowe-Manns, 14, a student at Mira Loma High School, was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver Wednesday morning on Watt Avenue in the Arden Arcade community.

The hit-and-run collision was reported to police about 5 a.m. near Whitney Avenue, the Sacramento Bee reports.  The CHP reported that the vehicle sped off with the boy still on the hood of the vehicle and then found the child unresponsive and unconscious in a front yard. Paramedics rushed the child to a hospital where he is being treated for major injuries.

One report stated that the teen tried to pop a wheelie up onto the sidewalk, but he instead fell backward toward Watt Avenue and was struck by the vehicle. The bicycle he was riding was a little big for him and he was not wearing a helmet.

The suspect’s vehicle, described as a dark-colored minivan or SUV-type vehicle, was last seen turning into a neighborhood just west of Watt Avenue near Harmony Lane and East Country Club Lane.

Witnesses or anyone with information about the suspect are asked to contact the CHP’s North Sacramento Area station at 916-348-2300.

Watt Avenue Hit-and-run Investigation

The investigation into a collision such as this one begins immediately at the scene, but will continue as police piece together evidence and speak with any witnesses.  There are certainly many unanswered questions about what happened, but right now police need to locate the suspect who fled.

We extend our condolences to the family of DeSean Rowe-Manns as they cope with this tragedy. 

There are many steps that should be taken following a collision to ensure your legal rights are protected, but this can vary depending on the circumstances. An injured person should seek out immediate and ongoing medical care until they are completely better.  If someone has died, a wrongful death claim may be pursued by surviving family members against those responsible and or their insurance company.

Keep in mind that there are times when a government entity or an employer of an involved motorist that may share responsibility for an accident. All responsible parties can be identified during the investigation.

We hope you are able to get the help you need, but if you would like legal assistance, please call us at 855-703-4186 to request a free consultation.
