Louis Saha unhurt after crashing Ferrari
Everton striker Louis Saha has escaped unharmed after crashing his Ferrari on a country road, police sources confirmed today.
The 32-year-old was driving his blue Ferrari 458 in Wilmslow, Cheshire, shortly before 9pm last night when he lost control of the car and collided with a fence.
The Frenchman, who was alone in the vehicle, was unhurt and no other vehicles were involved.
The accident happened on the A538 Altrincham Road, near a tunnel where former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo crashed his Ferrari in January 2009.
A spokeswoman for Cheshire Police said: "At 8.54pm last night police were called to Altrincham Road, Wilmslow, to the report of a single vehicle road traffic collision.
"Officers attended the scene where a blue Ferrari 458 had collided with a fence outside the tunnel.
"The 32-year-old driver was uninjured.
"Inquiries are continuing."
Saha played in Everton's 2-0 home win over Sunderland at Goodison Park on Saturday.
He signed for the Merseyside club in 2008 after four and a half years with Manchester United.
Saha, although he was troubled by a hamstring problem in the Sunderland game, is expected to be in contention for tomorrow's FA Cup fifth-round clash against Reading.
Manager David Moyes said: "I don't know much about it. I only just got told this morning. I couldn't tell you much, but he is okay."
Referring to the player's past problems with various injuries, Moyes joked: "Incredibly, he has no injuries from it!"
