Washington Football Team safety Deshazor Everett was involved in a car crash in Virginia on Thursday night that killed a female passenger.
According to a news release from the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office on Friday, the 29-year-old defensive back was driving a 2010 Nissan GT-R around 9:15 p.m. on Thursday when police said the vehicle “left the right side of the roadway, struck several trees and rolled over.”
The passenger, Olivia S. Peters, 29, of Las Vegas, Nevada was taken to a local hospital, where she later succumbed to her injuries. Everett sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
The Washington Football Team addressed the incident in a statement on Friday.
“We’ve been made aware of an automobile accident last night involving Deshazor Everett,” the statement read. “A passenger in his vehicle lost their life and we extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends who lost a loved one. Deshazor is currently in the hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who has been affected by this tragedy. Our team has alerted the league office and is working with local authorities as we continue to gather more information. We will have no further comment at this time.”
After going undrafted out of Texas A&M in 2015, Everett signed with Washington, where he has recorded 170 combined tackles, two forced fumbles and two interceptions over the past seven seasons.
TMZ reports that alcohol was not a factor, but law enforcement are still investigating.
