Abby Wambach Flipped SUV In Secret '14 Wreck ...Fled Scene

5/9/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0503_abby_wombach_car_crash_launchU.S. soccer legend Abby Wambach flipped her SUV in a secret late night car wreck back in 2014 -- and miraculously emerged healthy enough to walk more than a mile home following the crash.

TMZ Sports has confirmed ... Wambach was the driver of a Range Rover that crashed and flipped in Multnomah County, Oregon just after midnight on June 28, 2014. The car landed on a residential property -- causing damage to the front lawn. 

Moments after the crash, a passerby who came upon the flipped car called 911 and said the driver had already left the scene.  

A rep for the Portland PD tells us they ran the plate -- it matched with Abby -- so they went to her home (1 mile away) and located her there a short time later.  

Cops say Abby told them she had walked home because she didn't have her cell phone and wanted to call a tow truck. Unclear why she didn't flag down a motorist or knock on the door of the home where she flipped.  

Despite the severity of the crash and the curious fact she left the scene -- cops say they had no reason to believe Abby was impaired and did not administer a DUI test of any kind.  

The Multnomah County Sheriff's Dept. did file a 1 page report -- but Abby was never charged for hit and run or any other crime. 

Cops tell us this was NOT a case of celebrity justice -- with the responding officer insisting he didn't know who Abby was, despite her being a star on the U.S. National team. "We handled it as we would any other similar crash." 

In fact, cops say they helped put Abby in touch with the owner of the property so she could take care of the damages. 

We reached out to Abby for comment -- so far, no word back.

0129_miss_washington_stabbing_bloody_photos_launchTMZ Sports has obtained photos of the bloody scene at Marco Pappa's apartment -- after the MLS player was stabbed ... showing a bloody knife and a blood trail from the kitchen to the bathroom.

As we previously reported, cops say ex-Miss Washington Stormy Keffeler called 911 on Dec. 17th to report an accident at her boyfriend's Seattle apartment -- but when cops arrived both she and Marco told cops they had no idea what happened. 

0129-sub-miss-washington-tmz-01Marco was stabbed in the torso and needed surgery -- he denied Keffeler was his attacker. 

But check out the pics ... cops say they found a bloody knife in the kitchen and a blood trail that led to the bathroom. They say they also found stab marks on the wall. 


Cops sent the knife to the crime lab to be checked for fingerprints -- but no prints were recovered. 

For the record, officials tell TMZ Sports Stormy has NOT been charged with a crime, however the case is still under review. 

update_graphic_red_bar11:45 AM PT -- TMZ Sports has also obtained a copy of the 911 call in which Stormy initially tells the operator, "I had an accident at my boyfriend’s apartment."

When pressed, Stormy later says she has no idea how Marco was stabbed.  

At one point, an emergency responder can be heard saying, "This sounds suspicious to me."

11:54 AM PT -- Another interesting twist regarding Marco's brother, Jose -- who had previously told a major Guatemalan newspaper that he was visiting Marco in December and never heard about the stabbing

The twist ... is that Marco gave a statement to detectives at the hospital following the stabbing and Jose WAS THERE ... even identifying himself by name. 

So, the question ... why would Jose lie to the media?

By the way, officials say the call came in to 911 at 12:14 AM -- 9 MINUTES after prison officials say they found Phillips unresponsive in his cell.  

As we previously reported, Phillips' next of kin -- along with his biological mother and his lawyer -- do NOT believe Lawrence committed suicide ... and are demanding an investigation into the death.
