Sadly, Mr. Davis, who was well-known to many and a resident of Friendly Towers on Wilson, passed away from his injuries three weeks later.
We heard from the 19th District Court Advocates about his case:
"We've been following the case of Michael Izeta in the death of Wayne Davis. Tonight at our monthly meeting we heard it wrapped up early this month. Izeta was found guilty of failure to report an accident resulting in death (five years) and aggravated DUI resulting in an accident or death (eleven years). We weren't in the courtroom for sentencing, so I don't know how it all adds up. His projected parole date is July 9, 2024. He'll have a good long time to think about Wayne Davis' death. He's been incarcerated since November 2012. He had a history of DUI and was driving on a suspended license."Many people wrote to UU expressing their grief over Mr. Davis's death. One was from his former roommate: "He was the kindest man you would ever meet. Happy and cheerful and used a vocabulary from the 1920s which made him eccentric. ... I am so sad to hear of the occurrence as his health in general was fantastic and he would of made it to 100 easy. God rest in peace Sir Wayne."
