Washington Football Team safety Deshazor Everett was involved in a fatal car crash on Thursday night.
Everett was reportedly the driver.
The accident in question took place in Northern Virginia and left one female passenger dead.
According to a statement released by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, Everett was behind the wheel of a 2010 Nissan GT-R at approximately 9:15 p.m. eastern time when his car left the right side of the road, collided with trees and rolled over.
Olivia S. Peters, who was just 29 years old, was rushed to a local hospital but ultimately ended up dying from her injuries.
“Law enforcement sources tell us so far it does not appear alcohol was a factor, but they’re still investigating,” the report read.
Everett, a member of the Washington Football Team since inking a deal as an undrafted free agent six years ago, was taken to the hospital with “serious but non-life-threatening.”
If the report about Everett not being under the influence of alcohol stands, it will serve in stark contrast to the Ruggs situation. In that crash, Ruggs’ alleged recklessness was off the charts – as evidenced by what he and his girlfriend were doing right before the accident.
