Cristiano Ronaldo escapes unhurt from car crash

Table of Contents
Cristiano Ronaldo walked away unscathed after crashing his Ferrari in a tunnel on the way to training with Manchester United.

No-one was injured in the incident and Ronaldo was able to get out of the car himself before giving a negative breath test to police at the scene and then continuing to train with his team-mates as normal.

The crash happened on the A538 which takes traffic under the airport runways between Wilmslow and Hale.

The 23-year-old's sports car collided with a metal hand-rail which guards an emergency exit door in the tunnel.

Photographs showed the front of the vehicle completely crushed after absorbing the impact of the crash. Metal debris, including the front left wheel, was scattered across the road.

No other vehicles were involved, although Ronaldo's team-mate Edwin van der Sar was traveling behind him at the time.

The Ferrari was later loaded on to a recovery truck, covered in a black sheet, as the road was reopened.

Greater Manchester Police said in a statement: "At about 10.20am police were called to the A538 Wilmslow Road near to Manchester Airport following reports of a road traffic collision.

"Officers attended and discovered a Ferrari had collided with a barrier.

"No one is believed to have been injured. Inquiries are continuing."

United confirmed the incident had taken place and that Ronaldo was unhurt.

A club spokesman said: "He was involved in an incident this morning. No other cars were involved.

"He's fine and is training as normal with the team this morning."
