Fatal Nine Mile Road Hit And Run Victim Identified

February 14, 2019

The Florida Highway Patrol has identified a man killed in a hit and run crash early Wednesday morning on Nine Mile Road.

The FHP said 37-year old Charles Q. Davis of Pensacola was crossing Nine Mile Road near Plainfield Avenue when he struck by a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado driven by 42-year old James Alan Champitto. Davis was pronounced deceased at the scene.

“Champitto left the scene without leaving any information as required by law. Investigators received information regarding the location of the vehicle and owner who then identified the driver to investigators,” according to FHP Lt. Eddie Elmore. The information led to Champitto’s arrest later in the morning.

Champitto  was charged with leaving the scene of a traffic crash with a fatality and two counts of driving with a suspended license with a fatality. He is being held in the Escambia County Jail without bond.
