USAIN Bolt escaped serious injury today [June 10] despite smashing his car after driving home from a party.
The Olympic 100metre champion and world record-holder managed to avoid any injuries after crashing his BMW at 5.15am today at a place called Halfway Tree near his home in Kingston, Jamaica.
Ironically one of the first on the scene was Asafa Powell, the former 100m world record-holder and his rival for Olympic gold at London 2012.
Powell had been at the party too but was in another car.
Bolt reportedly suffered no injuries and went home to rest.
Three years ago, Bolt suffered minor injuries in a similar crash on the outskirts of the Jamaican capital.
He injured his left foot on thorns as he stepped out of the car and was treated at a nearby hospital.
After missing a few weeks of training he went on to win the 100m and 200m titles at that summer’s World Championships – and smash his own world records.
But the latest accident will raise questions as to what Bolt was doing out so late with the Jamaican trials for the Olympics less than two weeks away.
