KINGSTON, Jamaica (CMC) — Double sprint world record holder Usain Bolt escaped injury after he was involved in a minor car crash in the Jamaican capital, Kingston, early yesterday morning.
The Olympic champion crashed his luxury BMW motor car into guard rails at the Half-Way-Tree intersection shortly after 5:00 am.
A source close to the star athlete reported that he was not hurt in the crash and was resting comfortably at home.
According to the police, Bolt, who is preparing to defend his 100 and 200 metre titles at this summer’s London Olympics, was on his way home from a party when he crashed his car.
His friend and fellow sprint rival Asafa Powell was also at the scene of the crash, but was in another motor vehicle.
