Davis was rushed to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, where medical officials declared him dead at 1:24 am the next day.

According to the Sun Times Media Wire:

“A Wednesday autopsy determined Davis died from multiple blunt force injuries from a motorcycle accident and the death was ruled an accident, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

An anonymous tipster gave police the license plate of the vehicle, police said. The driver, Tiffany L. Jenkins, surrendered to police when she learned from a friend that officers were looking for her, police said.

Jenkins, 33, of Merrill, Wis., was charged with leaving the scene of an accident causing great bodily harm or death, driving on a revoked license and failing to yield, police said.

Jenkins is expected in bond court at 9 a.m. Thursday in Maywood.” VFP
