IU's Devin Davis in serious condition

Two Indiana basketball players were involved in a car accident early Saturday morning -- with one ending up in the hospital with a head injury and the other being cited for illegal consumption and operating a vehicle under the influence.

The school released a statement that sophomore forward Devin Davis was injured after being struck by a vehicle driven by freshman Emmitt Holt just moments after exiting it.

Davis was taken to IU Health Bloomington Hospital and is currently in serious condition. Hospital spokeswoman Amanda Roach said the hospital had no information on Davis.

"I've been with him all night," Indiana coach Tom Crean said in a text to ESPN.com. "Big 48 hours coming."

Holt was cited for illegal consumption and operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol content above 0.02. Holt registered a 0.025, according to the school. Someone is considered to be over the limit in Indiana if they have a BAC of at least .08 percent. If they are younger than 21 years old -- as was the case with Holt -- the limit is only .02 percent.

Sgt. Jeffery Canada of the Bloomington Police Department said the department was investigating the accident. He said a statement was likely to come later Saturday.

Canada says Holt and passengers in his SUV told police they had dropped Davis off in the parking lot outside the stadium about 12:45 a.m. Saturday.

Holt was driving away "when, for unknown reasons, Mr. Davis came into the roadway and struck the side of the vehicle near the front passenger windshield," Canada said.

Police found Davis unconscious with a head injury on the street that's just off the IU campus. Holt's Jeep Liberty had damage to its passenger side, front fender and windshield, Canada said.

Canada did not know whether blood tests had been done on Davis to determine whether he had been drinking.

Davis is a 6-foot-7 forward who averaged 2.4 points and 2.6 rebounds in 8.8 minutes last season. The 6-foot-7 Holt was a late signee who was set to go to prep school at Vermont Academy before he opted to play at Indiana this season.

"First and foremost, our thoughts are with Devin and his family and we pray that his condition improves in the coming days," Crean said in a statement. "An injury to one of us is an injury to all of us and we are devastated by the news. We will continue to support Devin and Emmitt in every possible way and I know the Hoosier family will come together to rally for these young men. We are working to gather additional information on the accident."

Crean called off Saturday's open practice and scrimmage. Indiana opens the season Nov. 14 against Mississippi Valley State.
