A car accident took place in February, 2009. The accident was located in Melville, New York.
At around four in the morning on the Saturday of the crash, Melissa Scherr, 25, of Valley Stream, was on the road returning from her boyfriend’s house. On her way home from the house in King’s Park, Scherr was driving at a steady spead, receiving directions over the phone from her boyfriend because a road closure got her driving the wrong way. Douglas Davis, 44, of Centerport, was allegedly driving while intoxicated by alcohol or drugs and smashed his pickup truck into Scherr’s sports car on Route 110, close to Schwab Road. After the hard crash, Scherr’s Nissan 200SX was sent flying into a utility pole. Davis then fled the scene.
After fleeing, Davis was found in Greenlawn. He appears to be working as a vice president of Davis Aircraft Products, which had sales of sixteen million dollars in the year of 2008.
As mentioned by police, Davis declined a breath test and did not pass a field sobriety test. Police received a warrant to acquire blood from Davis and are still awaiting the results of the test. The test shows alcohol and narcotics. The consequences of his actions will depend on the results of the toxicology report. Davis stationed $500,000 bond. Representing Davis is lawyer James O’Bourke of Hauppauge.
