following a fatal traffic accident

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — KUSI News is sad to report that late Wednesday night, that longtime KUSI anchor and reporter David Davis was killed in a fatal traffic accident.

He is survived by his two children and his wife Staci Ortiz-Davis, who has appeared alongside David many times here at KUSI News.

David Davis joined the KUSI News team in January 2003, he retired just a few months ago.

He died in a traffic accident near Dallas, while on a cross-country road trip.

He graduated from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville with a degree in Communications, and was a huge Tennessee Volunteer fan.  Davis anchored in four states across America.

He received many awards for his work, including spot news coverage of the Jeffrey Dahmer capture, and week-long 9/11 reports from New York.

We pass along our condolences to the Davis family and all those he touched here in San Diego.
