U.S. Striker Charlie Davies in Surgery After Being Involved in Serious Car Accident

From the Washington Post's Soccer Insider:

Charlie Davies in surgery after car wreck on GW Parkway. Not life threatening. Fatality involved in accident.

Match Fit USA has done some connecting of the dots and found that there was a fatal accident on the Parkway this morning. The WTOP article about said accident mentions no names, although it is the only report of a fatal car crash in that area this morning, so 1+1, etc.

More from the WTOP article:

Accident reconstruction near Boundary Channel Drive kept the parkway closed after the 3:15 a.m. accident.

The impact of the single-vehicle accident sheered the car in half, reports WTOP's Kristi King from the scene.

One person is dead. Two others are in serious condition.

U.S. Park Police spokesman Sgt. David Schlosser says the preliminary investigation indicates the vehicle lost control. The car struck the metal railing that goes across the bridge.

 

Yes: The impact tore the car into two pieces. Here's the back half:
