TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) -

New documents are shedding light on a double fatal accident that claimed the lives of two women New Year's Day in Tuscaloosa.

According to these documents, a Tuscaloosa Police officer witnessed KiAnthony Davis, 22, traveling at a high rate of speed just seconds before he hit another car. Evelyn Page, 45, and Shakevia Washington, 20, were traveling in that second vehicle. Both were killed.

The document doesn't say whether the officer actually saw the crash.

Investigators accuse Davis of not only speeding but say he may have been under the influence of alcohol at the time of the wreck.

The documents also contain witness statements from three passengers traveling in Davis' Chevy Impala at the time of the wreck.

According to the statements, all three passengers say they and Davis "had been drinking a lot before the crash and KiAnthony Davis had been driving." One claimed Davis was driving fast and all over the road. Another said Davis ran a red light.

Witnesses told officers that Davis remained briefly on the scene but left on foot before officers could question him.

Davis turned himself in to authorities Wednesday afternoon. He told FOX6 News, "I'm sorry, y'all. I promise I am. Don't hold no grudges."

Authorities have also revealed that the groups in the two vehicles knew each other but it's not clear if they were going to or coming from the same place.

Davis remains in the Tuscaloosa County Jail on no bond.
