According to Georgia State Patrol and reports in WSB and Henry Herald, Davis was riding a motorcycle around 12:35 a.m. near the intersection of Jodeco Road and the I-75 ramp and was stopped at the traffic light in the left eastbound lane of Jodeco Road.

A black Toyota pickup truck driven by Corey Ashton Sease, 20, was also traveling in the left eastbound lane of Jodeco Road and struck Davis' motorcycle from behind. Davis was ejected from the motorcycle.

Sease was charged with DUI, following too closely, and possession of marijuana less than 1 ounce.
