Boxing star Gervonta Davis indicted in hit-and-run crash that sent four to the hospital

Boxing star Gervonta Davis has been indicted on 14 counts related to a hit-and-run crash in downtown Baltimore last fall, court records show.

The 26-year-old boxer was indicted Monday in Baltimore Circuit Court. The charges stem from a crash that occurred in the early morning hours of Nov. 5, after Davis had been snapped celebrating his birthday at a downtown club and just days after the undefeated boxer’s latest win in the ring.

The charges include failure to remain at the scene of an accident involving bodily injury, failure to render reasonable assistance to an injured person, driving on a suspended license, and related charges. All are misdemeanors, the Baltimore State’s Attorney’s Office said, and the most serious charges each carry up to a year in jail.

The Baltimore Sun obtained an incident report of the crash last month, listing Davis as the driver who fled the scene. Davis’ team did not return calls seeking comment for that story and could not immediately be reached Monday.

In the state of 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.

The incident report said two people were traveling in a 2020 Lamborghini Urus SUV, registered to a Florida man, southbound on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard at around 1:50 a.m. when the driver ran a red light and struck a 2004 Toyota Solara. The report says the Solara’s airbags deployed and it was “destroyed.”

The Lamborghini, which has a base list price of $200,000, struck a fence and was “disabled.” Police previously said the vehicle did not have license plates. The occupants ditched the luxury SUV and fled on foot.

 

“The occupants of Vehicle 1 fled location after the crash but the driver was later identified as Gervonta Bryant Davis,” says the police report, citing witnesses and video surveillance footage.

 

The report said that Davis was “possibly injured” but did not cite a basis. The second person’s identity was unknown, according to the report.
