Boxer Gervonta Davis Involved In Hit-And-Run Accident In Baltimore, Source Says

BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- World boxing champion Gervonta Davis was reportedly involved in a hit-and-run accident in south Baltimore overnight, a source tells WJZ.

The accident happened around 1:53 a.m. Thursday at the intersection of Washington Boulevard and Martin Luther King Boulevard.

Police officers called to the scene for a report of a multi-vehicle collision. They found several people suffering from minor injuries and one person was taken to an area hospital for treatment, according to their report.

According to police, a vehicle ran through a red light and struck another vehicle, then left the scene.

The Baltimore Police Department would not confirm if Davis was at the scene or driving the vehicle, but a source tells WJZ Davis was in the Lamborghini that ran the red light. Police have not named anyone involved in the crash.

Fliers circulated on social media about a celebration for Davis at a nightclub earlier in the night.

A law enforcement source told WJZ Davis arrived at the club around midnight and left around 1:30 a.m. The crash happened less than 30 minutes later.

It's not the first time Davis has had a run-in with the law this year.

In February 2020, he was charged with battery after a viral video allegedly showed him in an altercation with his ex-girlfriend.

The viral video appeared to show Davis, 25, battering his ex-girlfriend, with whom he shares a child, while at a celebrity basketball game in Miami.

WJZ reported Sunday that Davis retained his WBA lightweight championship when he knocked out Leo Santa Cruz with a stunning uppercut in the sixth round Saturday night at the Alamodome.

Anyone with additional information regarding this incident is urged to contact C.R.A.S.H. Team investigators at 410-396-2606.
