Indiana sophomore basketball player Devin Davis, who was hospitalized Saturday after being struck by a car and being knocked unconscious, is doing better after nearly 48 hours of treatment at IU Health Bloomington Hospital.
Davis' family released a statement on Sunday night, saying "Devin's condition is improving."
"As all parents can understand, the last 36 hours have been difficult for us and for all of those who care about our son. Devin's condition is improving and we know that there is a road to recovery ahead," the statement says. "We want to thank the incredible team at IU Health Bloomington Hospital for taking such great care of Devin. We also want to express our gratitude to Coach Crean, who has been by Devin's bedside for most of the past two days and to all of his coaches, teammates and the extended Hoosier family who have kept him in their prayers."
Davis was struck by a car driven by his teammate, Emmitt Holt, at 12:45 a.m. Saturday and was unconscious just north of 17th Street when an ambulance arrived at the scene. Davis suffered a head injury and was listed in serious condition. Holt, 18, was cited for underage drinking and operating a vehicle. His BAC was 0.025.
Holt dropped Davis off in the Memorial Stadium parking lot and exited back onto 17th Street, but Davis reentered the roadway and was struck by Holt's car at the intersection of 17th Street and Indiana Ave.
On Sunday morning, Indiana released a statement saying that Davis was awake, was speaking normally, and had full control and movement of all of his extremities.
