A car driven by Washington Football Team DB Deshazor Everett was involved in a single-car rollover crash that killed his passenger, Olivia S. Peters.
Peters, 29, died after Everett's 2010 Nissan GT-R hit several trees before rolling over on Thursday night in Loudin County, Virginia, according to TMZ.
The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office, which is investigating the accident, said Everett was transported to a hospital, where he is listed in critical but stable condition.
Sources tell Black Sports Online that Everett and Peters were possibly in a romantic relationship at the time of the crash. She was pronounced dead at Stone Springs Hospital.
Everett, 29, does not drink, so alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash.
