Driver faces vehicular homicide charge in passenger's death

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) - Chattanooga police have arrested 20-year-old Braylon Davis on charges including vehicular homicide by intoxication after he reportedly lost control of his vehicle in December, resulting in the death of one of his passengers.

Davis was driving south on Germantown Road when he lost control and crossed into northbound lanes of traffic Dec. 3, according to police.

The vehicle went off the roadway before striking a residence at 20 S. Germantown Road. The vehicle then flipped before hitting the front of the home where it came to a final rest.

The front seat passenger, 25-year-old Taylor Collins was injured when he was thrown from the vehicle. He later died from his injuries.

Because Davis was intoxicated at the time of the single vehicle crash, he is being charged in the death of Collins, according to police.

Davis, who has already gone before a Hamilton County Grand Jury, was indicted on the charges which also included reckless endangerment, minor in possession of alcohol, financial responsibility and driving under the influence.

He is expected to appear in court May 30 before Hamilton County Criminal Court Judge Barry Steelman.
