Johnathan Mitchell Struck and Seriously Hurt by Hit-and-Run Driver on Ninth Street in Stockton

1-Year-Old Johnathan Mitchell Seriously Injured in Hit-and-Run Crash on 9th Street, Devante Edmond Arrested

Stockton, California (April 2, 2020) – 23-year-old Devante Edmond was arrested and booked into the San Joaquin County Jail following a suspected hit-and-run pedestrian accident that left a juvenile with critical injuries in Stockton at around 5:55 p.m. March 22, according to a Stockton Police Department report.

One-year-old Johnathan Mitchell was hospitalized at UC Davis Children’s Hospital with critical injuries after being struck by a silver sedan operated by Edmond along the 1500 block of East Ninth Street Sunday afternoon.

Edmond, who escaped after hitting Mitchell, was arrested by police Wednesday on felony hit-and-run charge.

The accident remains under an active investigation.

A person on foot is no match for a vehicle. Pedestrians have virtually no protection when they are hit by cars, motorcycles, trucks, and other vehicles. Sadly, this often leads to catastrophic injuries and/or death. “Due to the incredibly serious nature of these types of injuries, pedestrian accident cases often require special care in order to help ensure victims receive the full compensation they need for extensive medical bills, ongoing rehabilitation therapy, in-home care, lost past and future earnings, and numerous other economic and non-economic damages”, Said Arin Khodaverdian, an experienced pedestrian accident attorney.

Arin noted that pedestrians, in most instances, have the right-of-way when crossing a street or an intersection. According to Arin, to properly investigate a pedestrian crash and prove negligence, enough resources are required. “A skilled attorney has the resources and will help investigate the accident to determine the party at fault,” Arin said
