CLEMSON, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - In a lawsuit, two Clemson football players are being accused of racing their cars and causing a crash that injured a mail carrier in 2021.

According to the lawsuit, the two players Frederick L. Davis, II and Malcolm Greene were observed traveling south on Highway 123 in close proximity and at a high rate of speed, weaving in and out of lanes, and appeared to be racing on July 21, 2021.

The lawsuit states that Davis was the driving a 2021 Dodge Charger at 115 mph in a 55 mph zone, when he hit his brakes 2.8 seconds before crashing into the mail carrier’s truck.

Davis was charged with reckless driving last year following the crash.

The mail carrier suffered physical harm and injury and had to undergo much physical pain due to the crash, according to the lawsuit.

On Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2022, in an interview, Coach Dabo Sweeney was asked about the incident and if the player’s status on the team will change.

“It’s a civil suit and this stuff will play out but we all know there’s consequences,” said Sweeney. “And you know even though you know it was a year ago and they’ve had a lot of things internally and all that stuff, that’s something, as I’ve said, that’s going to be consequences for that for a long time. That’s life. But it doesn’t change anything as far as their status with the team.”

The team released a statement in July 2021 following the incident and Davis’ charges.
