Trooper Davis was killed when he lost control of his patrol car while responding to a felony traffic stop. As Trooper Davis rounded a curve, his cruiser slid into a pickup truck and then into a tree. Two other troopers who were following close behind immediately stopped and attempted to revive him. He was taken by ambulance to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead approximately an hour and 45 minutes later. The suspect in the felony traffic stop was arrested later in the day.

Trooper Davis had been in law enforcement for 27 years.

In 2006, the Mt. Hope Church Road bridge over Interstate 40/85 at, exit 132, was renamed the Trooper W. B. Davis Bridge.
