MILWAUKEE- The I-TEAM has uncovered new details in a horrific hit-and-run crash back on March 14.
An Alverno College student nearly died while crossing the intersection of Farwell & North with friends.
She was struck by a car and left for dead.
"All I remember is waking up consciously and wondering why I'm in a hospital," said Mai Kaw Xiong to TODAY'S TMJ4 -- who is making an amazing recovery. "I want to tell everybody who supported me, who is behind me, thank you."
She's walking again -- trying to move past that tragic night.
Police reports describe what is on the security footage: A Volkswagen Jetta does not slow down at all.
Investigators would eventually be led to a home in Riverwest and to a garage on the property and that's where they found the car.
22-year-old Douglas Davis appeared in court weeks later and police said he was the man behind the wheel.
And now the I-TEAM reports that Davis told authorities he was at a hookah bar, 2 Sweet International Delight, on Locust and Maryland the night of the accident. He said when he left the bar, he came out to the street and noticed damage to his car; denied ever hitting the young woman.
But police say a bumper found at the crash scene matched up perfectly to the gaping hole in the suspect's car.
Once arrested, Davis told police he was too scared to stop. The report adds Davis cried several times during the interview and he said he felt bad for what he had done.
