It looks like the late-night wreck that cost one person her life will also cost Charlie Davies the World Cup.
ARLINGTON, Va. -- U.S. national team forward Charlie Davies is recovering after suffering several broken bones and a lacerated bladder in a one-vehicle accident in which another person was killed.
Davies underwent several hours of surgery Tuesday at Washington Hospital Center Medstar, where he is listed in serious but stable condition.
Davis broke two bones in his right leg and also sustained facial fractures and a fracture in his left elbow. A U.S. Soccer team doctor says such injuries "usually require a recovery period of six to 12 months," making it unlikely Davis will be able to play in next summer's World Cup.
The accident took place at about 3:15 a.m. in the suburbs of the nation's capital.
The question must be asked: What was Davies doing out that late two days before a qualifier, and was the driver of the car drinking?
