This was a New Year’s Day crash that involved two vehicles. Two women were killed, and 4 were injured. The male driver involved is being questioned by police for several possible crimes. Police believe that person originally left the scene of the accident.
Date: Wednesday, January 1, 2014
Time: Around 3 in the morning
City / County / State: Tuscaloosa, Alabama
Address: Intersection of McFarland Boulevard and 15th Street
1. A 20-year-old woman died. She was in the car NOT driven by KiAnthony Davis. Her name is Shakevia Washington.
2. The 45-year-old woman who was killed was with the 20-year-old woman. She is Evelyn Page.
There were three people in Davis’s car (4 including him). They were injured but released already. A 4th man was found on the street. It is not clear yet whether he was a pedestrian, but police believe he may have originally been in a vehicle. That man is still in the hospital.
Subject Of Investigation:
KiAnthony Davis is 22. The reason I am not calling him a “suspect” is because reports have not yet cited police as using that term. However, the police seem to be working on a theory that could have Davis is serious hot water if the facts turn out against him.
Facts And Evidence:
So far, police are looking into whether Davis had been drinking alcohol before the accident and also whether he was speeding, ran a red light to cause the crash, and whether he fled the scene.
Police have said they have reason to believe that Davis ran the red light when going down 15th Street, causing a collision in the intersection with the victims who died. They also reported they have reason to believe that he was driving at a high rate of speed and recklessly.
There was no clear indication of formal charges yet.
Note: AL.com does say that Davis is being held on two counts of murder.
