A U.S. Park Police detective wrote in the court papers that the driver told police that she drank alcohol before the crash and officers smelled alcohol on her breath. The driver, Davies and Roberta were last seen about an hour before the accident at a D.C. establishment that serves alcohol, the detective added.
Detectives describe the accident as being caused by distraction. The unnamed driver said she was adjusting her GPS unit when one of the passengers screamed, causing the driver to swerve right and strike the guard rail.
Davies has already began rehabilitation and told ESPN that he is hopeful of playing in the 2010 World Cup. He is recovering from two fractures in his right leg and a badly injured bladder.
