Driver drank alcohol before crash that injured Davies
Federal court records show the driver in a car accident in northern Virginia that seriously injured U.S. national soccer team forward Charlie Davies had consumed alcohol.
Davies broke several bones, including two in his right leg, and injured his bladder in the one-vehicle accident, which took place along George Washington Parkway in the Wahsington, D.C., area on Oct. 13. Another passenger in the vehicle died.
In documents made public Thursday, a U.S. Park Police detective said the unnamed driver told police she drank alcohol before the crash and officers smelled alcohol on her breath.
The detective says authorities were unable to recover data from an air bag sensor and were in the process of analyzing a GPS device.
After multiple operations, Davies began rehabilitation last month in Delaware.
