|Update: American forward Charlie Davies said he was not the driver of a car stopped for going 125 mph last weekend, but told French police he was to protect a teammate.|
Davies was going 110 miles per hour in his Audi Q7.
In the above image fans raise Charlie Davies’ number 9 just after the accident that nearly killed him.
What’s strange about all this is that it happened last weekend. Charlie Davies didn’t seem bothered by it this past week as he tweeted about various topics throughout the week, from video games to joking around with U.S. national team teammates.
Yes, he’s a young man, and can make mistakes. But someone died in the accident he was in year ago and he has his whole life and soccer career ahead of him. He’s very lucky to be alive.
It will be interesting to hear what he has to say about the incident. His Twitter feed has been quite the past day or so. He was a hero in many ways to people around the world and everyone was behind him in his quest to return to and make the 2010 World Cup squad. This all comes after a new ESPN the mag piece about how Davies is fighting to get back to his previous playing days.
