Driver of Davenport rollover crash faces numerous charges

A driver involved in a rollover crash in Davenport was arrested and faces several charges.

Davenport Police said that Saturday evening, May 17, 2014 officers had attempted to pull-over an SUV in Rock Island but the vehicle crossed into Davenport via the Centennial Bridge. Shortly after the attempted traffic stop, the SUV crashed into a utility pole and rolled several times, causing injuries to the passengers inside.

According to the Davenport Police, the driver of that vehicle was 30-year-old Torrence Smith.

Scott County Jail records indicate that he faces several charges which include driving while barred, driving under suspension, serious injury by vehicle, OWI, no insurance, fraud use of registration, leaving the scene of an injury accident, and failure to maintain control.

Jessica Claver, a friend of one of the injured passengers, said that she has sympathy for the family and those involved. She noted that “it would be nice if the community could come together” to help the victims with medical expenses.
