Maryland right tackle Pete DeSouza suffered non-life threatening injuries in a motor scooter accident tonight in College Park, a team spokesman said.
DeSouza was involved in an accident shortly after 9 p.m. on campus when the scooter he was driving collided with a car. DeSouza was transported to an area hospital.
The redshirt freshman has started the last three games for the Terrapins (4-2, 1-1 ACC), who visit Boston College (2-4, 0-3) on Saturday.
(ADD, 11:57 p.m.: Maryland just issued a three-paragraph release on DeSouza's accident, notably this description of the event, which occurred in front of the Stamp Student Union:
"DeSouza was operating a motor scooter traveling westbound on Campus Drive when a motorist turned left in front of DeSouza. DeSouza’s scooter collided with the vehicle causing DeSouza to go down."
The release, issued jointly by Maryland's athletic department and the campus police department, said the driver of the vehicle was issued a traffic citation. The school said there will be no further updates tonight).
