Bret M. Davis, the driver of a Cadillac involved in a crash that resulted in the death of 56-year-old James Miser, has a history of repeated traffic violations.
The accident occurred five days after the previous restrictions on Davis’ license, for reckless driving violations, were lifted.
During the period his license was restricted, Davis was cited seven times for traffic violations but the tickets did not affect his license because the cases had not yet gone to court.
Davis, 28 struck Miser’s pickup at K-15 and 47th on June 15, 2011. Miser was injured in the accident and taken to the hospital where he died of his injuries two days later.
The collision which occurred on June 15th around 5:30 a.m. was the latest of 18 instances since August 2006 where Davis had been stopped and cited in Derby, Wichita and Sedgwick County for traffic violations. Of the 18 times he was cited, he received seven convictions: reckless driving, failing to stop before a sidewalk, four for speeding and one for driving with a suspended license. Davis also entered into a DUI diversion agreement on June 3, 2010.
Davis has also been stopped for transporting an open container, speeding and having a cracked windshield.
Police are still investigating the June 15th accident.
