On Friday April 12, 66 year old Bishop resident Maurice Davis was hit by a car while crossing Main St. in the crosswalk at Yaney. Now, well over a week later, Bishop Police report that Davis remains on life support in Reno.

The driver of the SUV that hit Davis, Sean Anne Jones of Bishop, was arrested for alleged driving under the influence. Now the DAs office has filed felony charges of alleged driving under the influence of alcohol resulting in serious bodily injury. Jones is scheduled to be arraigned in court on Wednesday.

In the meantime, this tragic accident could get worse. Bishop Police report that they continue to monitor the status of the victim in case of a fatality that would change the charges alleged.
