A Clemson football player was charged with reckless driving after a July 21 crash involving a U.S. Mail Carrier.

Clemson Police said 19-year-old Frederick Davis was driving 115 mph in a posted 55 mph zone which caused him to lose control of his vehicle prior to the crash. The Clemson cornerback then collided with a U.S. mail carrier. The driver of the carrier vehicle suffered severe injuries which will require months of recovery, according to a report from officers.

“Fred Davis remains with the program but will be subject to internal discipline,” a Clemson Football Spokesperson said in a statement, per WIS News 10. “Grounds for internal discipline for misdemeanor charges like this are covered under the terms of the Clemson Student-Athlete Handbook, which says that the head coach can recommend a course of action, and upon concurrence of the designated CUAD administrator, administer sanctions.”

Davis is entering his second season with the team.
