[U.S. SOCCER] The Washington Post reports that the driver of the car in the accident that seriously injured U.S. forward Charlie Davies and killed a 22-year-old passenger told police she had consumed alcohol before the Oct. 13 accident. Court documents obtained by the Post also revealed further details of the accident, from which the driver suffered minor injuries.

Detectives said in the court documents that the driver, who has not be identified, told officers that she was making an adjustment to her GPS unit when passenger Ashley J. Roberta yelled, "Watch out!" Police said the driver swerved to the right and struck the guard rail.

Roberta was killed in the accident. The 23-year-old Davies, a rising star with the U.S. national team, suffered two fractures in his right leg, facial injuries, and a badly injured bladder.

The Washington Post's Del Quentin Wilber reported that "driver, Davies and Roberta were last seen about an hour before the accident at a D.C. establishment that serves alcohol," according to a detective.

The 2004 Infiniti FX35, a mid-size luxury crossover SUV, was cut in half after striking the guard rail in the southbound lanes of George Washington Parkway near Boundary Channel. Investigators believe the car was going faster than the 40 mph speed limit.
