American boxer, Gervonta Davis has been indicted on 14 counts of various traffic violations related to a hit-and-run crash that sent four people to the hospital.
Davis, 26, was indicted Monday, March 22, in Baltimore Circuit Court. The charges stem from a crash that occurred in the early morning hours of Nov. 5, after Davis had been celebrating his birthday at a downtown club just days after the undefeated boxer’s latest win in the ring.
Among the 14 charges, Davis has been cited for failure to remain at the scene of an accident involving bodily injury, failure to render assistance to an injured person and driving with both a suspended and revoked license. All are considered misdemeanors in Maryland with the most serious carrying up to a year in jail.
Court documents from the Baltimore City State’s Attorney Office reported that Davis, who was driving a 2020 Lamborghini Uris, ran a red light at 1:47 a.m. ET and struck the front passenger side of a 2004 Toyota Solara.
Video from a nearby convenience store saw Davis’s car collide into the store’s fence and became “disabled.”
Witness accounts and video gathered during the investigation showed a black Camaro that arrived at the scene shortly after the crash before passengers began transferring items from the Lamborghini to the Camaro.
Davis and an unidentified female were also captured on camera fleeing the scene in the Camaro.
The four occupants of the Solara car that was struck were transported to University of Maryland Shock Trauma as a result of the crash with Gil Amaral, an attorney for the injured driver, telling the Baltimore Sun his client suffered “fairly serious injuries” that have complicated the recovery.
“Fortunately, the victims in this case were able to survive the alleged hit and run collision with recoverable injuries despite the potential for a far worse scenario,” State Attorney Marillyn Mosby said in a statement. “My office will continue to do our part to hold reckless drivers accountable when their harmful actions actions put innocent lives in jeopardy.”
In Maryland, leaving the scene of a crash that results in serious injuries is a felony punishable by up to five years in prison, but the charges filed indicate prosecutors believed the victims’ injuries did not rise to that level.
Davis (24-0, 23 KOs) currently holds the WBA super featherweight title and the WBA “regular” lightweight title.
