Here is what we know about the fatal car crash.
A woman is dead after suffering injuries in a car crash where the driver was Washington Football Team Safety Deshazor Everett.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Deshazor was behind the wheel of the car when it hit multiple trees, killing a female passenger, 29-year-old Olivia S. Peters, who lived in Las Vegas. She was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Everett was taken to a local hospital, where he remained Friday morning. His injuries are reportedly serious but not life-threatening.
The accident occurred at around 9:15 Thursday night in Loudoun County, Virginia. Everett was driving a 2010 Nissan GT-R and actually hit a few trees before it rolled over.
The crash is under investigation.
BSO sources are telling us that Everett and Peters possibly could have been in a relationship and Everett has been known NOT to drink, so they are hoping there was no alcohol involved in the accident.
