Last week, 18-year-old Aaron Davis was driving to school Wednesday morning when he was struck by an SUV as he was turning left onto City Park from the Anthony Wayne Trail. After fighting for his life since the accident, Davis passed away at Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center on Monday.
The driver of the SUV, 36-year-old Donald McMullin, was speeding through the changing traffic light on the Anthony Wayne Trail when he struck Davis’ vehicle.
Aaron Davis’ family refers to his death as “senseless,” and they want charges to be filed against McMullin for causing the death of their innocent son.
As of now, detectives are reviewing the case and charges will most likely be presented to the grand jury. McMullin failed to yield and obey traffic devices, ultimately causing the death of 18-year-old Davis. But, the charges that will be filed against him will never bring back Aaron Davis, an innocent victim in this entire situation.
On top of what that police file against McMullin, the family will also be able to file charges. A wrongful death claim can be issued by the Davis family, and damages can be recovered from the at-fault party for any pain and suffering that Aaron Davis experienced up until his death, as well as damages to the surviving family.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Davis family during this difficult time, as no parent should have to see their child leave this Earth before their time. We know that this unimaginable incident has turned the family’s life upside-down, and we will continue to send prayers their way.
