The 29-year-old Drinkwater, who has played three times for England, and two women who were in his car were treated for minor injuries. No other vehicles were involved in the incident. British newspaper The Sun reported Tuesday that Drinkwater had been at a charity party on Sunday night.
Drinkwater signed for Chelsea in 2017, a year after playing a key role for Leicester in its improbable Premier League title run. He has not played under Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri this season, and last played a competitive game 13 months ago.
