Ronaldo wrecks his Ferrari in Manchester tunnel crash
Manchester United footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has escaped unharmed after smashing his sportscar into a mangled wreck, leaving a trail of debris scattered over the road, according to reports.
His Ferrari collided with a barrier in a tunnel on the A538 Wilmslow Road near Manchester Airport at about 10.20am.
Witnesses said his car was a “mangled wreck” – and police say it is a write-off. One of the wheels had come off and was about 200 yards behind where the car had come to rest.
A witness told The Sun: “The front of Ronaldo’s car was completely mangled. There was metal all over the road and debris – and we had to dodge our way through it.
“Ronaldo was just standing at the side of the road looking forlorn and bewildered.
“My daughter said to me, ‘Oh my God – that’s Cristiano Ronaldo!’ It’s amazing he was okay because his car looked so bad.”
The 23-year-old was able to get out of the vehicle himself and was spoken to by police at the scene. Greater Manchester Police have confirmed that he will also be formally questioned, and that no one was injured.
Ronaldo’s Manchester United teammate Edwin Van Der Sar is also understood to have been questioned by police. The Man U goalie was not involved in the incident, but is understood to have been travelling behind Ronaldo in his Bentley.
A club spokesman said: “[Ronaldo] 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.”
Ronaldo came on as a substitute in the final 30 minutes of his team’s 1-0 Carling Cup defeat to Derby County last night.
