ARLINGTON, Virginia (Reuters) – United States forward Charlie Davies is in a serious but stable condition following surgery after being injured in a deadly single-car accident in Virginia early on Tuesday.
Davies, 23, underwent several hours of surgery after sustaining a lacerated bladder and fractures to his tibia and femur bones in his right leg, the U.S. Soccer Federation said in a statement.
A person in the car with Davies was killed in the accident, federation spokesman Neil Buethe said in the statement.
Davies's injuries were not considered life-threatening, but would rule him out of playing the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
