The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office in Virginia has confirmed to multiple outlets that Washington Football Team defensive back and special teamer Deshazor Everett was the driver in a fatal car accident Thursday night.
According to the release from the Sheriff’s Office, Everett was driving a 2010 Nissan GT-R around 9:15 p.m., when the vehicle “left the right side of the roadway, struck several trees, and rolled over.”
Olivia Peters, a 29-year-old woman from Las Vegas, was the passenger in the vehicle. She was taken to StoneSprings Hospital and died from her injuries.
Everett sustained serious — but not life-threatening — injuries.
The crash is under investigation.
Washington released a statement Friday morning, after the news was made public:
“We’ve been made aware of an automobile accident last night involving Deshazor Everett. A passenger in his vehicle lost their life and we extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends who lost a loved one.
