Deputy William Davis was struck and killed by a vehicle while working an accident scene on I-29 at the Sioux River Bridge.

He was placing the driver of one of the vehicles under arrest for refusing to sign a citation when another driver lost control of her vehicle on the icy road. The vehicle slid into the back of Deputy Davis' patrol car and then struck him as he was searching the suspect. Deputy Davis was thrown approximately 30-feet and killed almost instantly.

Deputy Davis had served in law enforcement for 21 years. He is survived by his mother and brother.
