ALEXANDRIA, VA. (AP) - The driver in a 2009 crash that injured U.S. national team forward Charlie Davies and killed a female passenger is scheduled to plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter and drunken driving.

A plea hearing is set for Tuesday in federal court in Alexandria for Maria A. Espinoza of Clarksville, Md. She was driving in October 2009 on the George Washington Parkway in northern Virginia when the accident occurred.

Davies sustained two broken bones in his right leg, elbow and face and a lacerated bladder. The other passenger, 22-year-old Ashley J. Roberta of Phoenix, Md., was killed.

The injuries caused Davies to miss this year’s World Cup. He is trying to regain fitness with Sochaux’s reserves in France.

Last month, Davies was fined $1,040 and his license was suspended by French police because of a speeding violation in which he said a teammate was driving.
