Update: Everett is being held at the county detention center

Washington Commanders safety Deshazor Everett was the driver in a car crash on December 23, 2021 that resulted in the death of his passenger and girlfriend, Olivia Peters. Everett sustained injuries in the crash that required hospitalization, and he was placed on the Reserve/NFI list which ended his season. Everett was seen earlier in the year with a boot on his foot, but the extent of his injuries was never reported in detail.

Here is the original statement following the accident from the Loudon County Sheriff’s Department:

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a fatal crash that occurred Thursday night on Gum Spring Road.

The driver of a 2010 Nissan GT-R was traveling north on Gum Spring Road near Ticonderoga Road when around 9:15 p.m. 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 StoneSprings Hospital where she succumbed to her injuries.

The driver was taken to Reston Hospital Center where he is being treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

Details from the crash:

In a 9-minute redacted recording of the 911 call from the accident, two male witnesses recounted the harrowing moments to a dispatcher. One of the witness said he was driving his own car at the time of the accident and that Everett was driving behind him. He told the dispatcher the car was “trapped in the trees,” and pleaded for responders to “please hurry.”

Deshazor Everett appeared at the Loudon County Magistrate’s Office today and was served with a warrant for involuntary manslaughter for the death of Olivia Peters. His lawyer released statement after he was released on bond saying asking that people reserve judgement until all the facts are investigated and litigated.
