Awful news out of Virginia, USA. US National team striker Charlie Davies, who plays for Sochaux in Ligue 1, has been in a terrible one-car accident that claimed the life of a young female passenger and left him in the hospital with serious injuries.
Charlie played in the recent USA v Honduras World Cup group qualifiers and is now facing a lengthy recovery period and rehabilitation. His injuries read as scary for any footballer: a broken right femur and tibia (which then required titanium rods), a lacerated bladder, facial lacerations, and a fractured left elbow.
Our thoughts are with Charlie, his family and the families of the others involved in the crash. The state of the car gives us chills. Ugh.
