Benzema involved in car accident

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema was involved in another car accident on Friday but escaped unharmed.

El Mundo explains Benzema’s Audi RS6 was hit from behind by a Nissan Note on the M-13 motorway in Madrid.

Fortunately, both drivers did not suffer any injuries, while there were no traces of alcohol in their bloodstreams.

The Frenchman was involved in a similar incident earlier in the year, on the Caribbean island of Reunion, and crashed into barriers in the Madrid municipality of Pozuelo de Alarcon in 2009 – the same year as his arrival from Olympique Lyonnais.

He was also detained by police for the third time in 2013 for driving without a valid licence.

Benzema missed Los Blancos’ 2-1 win at Alaves over the weekend with a hamstring injury but recently signed a new contract until 2021.
