Suspended Florida Gators junior defensive end Keivonnis Davis is hospitalized after a serious accident on the road, per multiple reports.

The news was first reported by Trey Wallace of The Read Optional — who cites the lawyer representing Davis in the ongoing investigation into his and eight other Gators’ alleged credit card fraud — and subsequently confirmed by 247Sports.

Wallace deemed the incident “a car accident,” while Thomas Goldkamp of 247Sports reported it as “a serious scooter accident.”

Sworn complaints filed by the University of Florida Police Department on Monday allege Davis made two transfers of $800 to his UF Bookstore account from a credit card belonging to someone else in late July, then bought a laptop with the illicit money. He stands to face four third-degree felony charges if charges are brought against him.

Davis remains enrolled as a student Florida despite being suspended from all team activities related to football, and Jim McElwain has indicated all nine currently suspended players will remain suspended until the saga reaches a conclusion through the legal system.

Davis was a reserve defensive end for much of 2016, but recorded 27 tackles, three tackles for loss, and a sack in his sophomore season.
