According to court documents, on November 5, 2020 at approximately 1:55 a.m., Baltimore City police officers responded to the unit block of Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and Washington Boulevard in Baltimore City for a two vehicle collision between a 2020 Lamborghini Uris and a 2004 Toyota Solara. At 1:47 a.m., the red light camera located at Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) Boulevard and 700Washington Boulevard showed the Lamborghini traveling southbound on MLK when the vehicle drove through the red light and struck the front passenger side of the Toyota Solara traveling westbound on Washington Blvd with a green signal. The video captured from a nearby convenience store showed the Lamborghini collide directly into the store’s fence and the driver, was allegedly identified by witnesses as Gervonta Davis.
Following the collision, witness accounts and video gathered during the investigation also revealed that a black Camaro arrived at the scene of crash, and people began transferring items from the Lamborghini to the Camaro. Allegedly, the defendant and the unidentified female passenger were captured on camera leaving from the scene in the Camaro. Four occupants of the Toyota Solara were injured as a result of the collision and were transported to University of Maryland Shock Trauma.
"Fortunately, the victims in this case were able to survive this alleged hit and run collision with recoverable injuries despite the potential for a far worst scenario,” said State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby. ”My office will continue to do our part to hold reckless drivers accountable when their harmful actions put innocent lives in jeopardy.”
