For 8 years now, a Midland family has waited for closure in the death of their son.
On September 12, 2007, Dustin Davidson was killed in a motorcycle crash that occurred at Whitmire & Garfield when the driver of a truck pulled out in front of him and Dustin couldn’t avoid the truck. Dustin landed in the street and died from his injuries. After stopping and asking how Dustin was doing, both men in the truck drove away.
Midland Police Sergeant Jimmy Young advised that the investigator who worked the case spoke with witnesses who advised that it was a grey Chevrolet pickup with a partial license plate C-T-7. The two white males stopped to check the status of the victim and someone on the scene said he has massive head injuries and the two males drove off.
No one has ever been arrested or charged, and each year it seems that they may never know who did this, but the family hasn’t given up. Dustin left behind a daughter who was very young at the time and is now a teenager. Her grandparents feel it is time that this case is solved for her and the rest of the family.
If you have any information regarding this case and it leads to this cold case being solved, you will be eligible for a $2,500 cash reward. You will remain anonymous.
