QT: Charlie Davies involved in car crash [UPDATE]

If we believe all things twitter, than we have some bad news for Charlie and the USMNT.  According to the SoccerInsider twitter feed, Charlie is in surgery following an accident on the GW Parkway. This may be related to the accident reported last night where there was a fatality. Current traffic reports do not show issues on GW Parkway.

Believed to be the vehicle in which Charlie was traveling.

Believed to be the vehicle in which Charlie was traveling.

Comments from Jozy Altidore and Maurice Edu back this information up.

ESPN is now reporting the accident, while a local NBC newstation states that the fatality (if they are, in fact, the same accident) was 22 year-old Ashley Roberta of Phoenix, Maryland.

In either case, a rough day for the Men’s national team. Here’s hoping that Charlie (currently still in surgery) will be ok. If reports are correct, he’s lucky to be alive given the state of the car.

[Update]: It is now being reported that a USSF spokesperson (presumably Neil Buethe) has stated that the injuries to Davies are “‘possibly’ career-threatening”.

[Update]: The AP is reporting the woman was not the driver of the vehicle.

[Update]: Apparently USSF has withdrawn the ‘possibly’ career-threatening comment as there is not enough info (from Grant Wahl )

[Update]: A variety of sources now reporting that Davies broke his right femur and tibia (requiring the insertion of titanium rods), has a lacerated bladder, facial lacerations, and a fractured left elbow. The latter 2 conditions may require additional surgery. Minimum of 1 week in the hospital, and anywhere from 6-12 months of recovery time.
