Ronaldo Wrecks His Ferrari

On Thursday morning at about 10:20 am, Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo was involved in a car crash.

Ronaldo was unhurt, but as you can see from the picture above, his new Ferrari was wrecked.

Ronaldo collided with a wall in a tunnel near Manchester Airport and was being followed to training by teammate Edwin van der Sar. 

Police actually breathalysed Ronaldo at the scene which came out negative. 

Ronaldo continued to training and was checked by Man United doctors to make sure he wasn't suffering from shock. 

Ronaldo could possibly face reckless driving charges.

To me the craziest part of the story is that Ronaldo was breathalysed at the scene. It was 10 in the morning and unless in England they breathalyse everyone involved in every crash, Ronaldo must have been acting in some way that warranted a test. Imagine how crazy it would have been if Ronaldo had drunkenly crashed his car on the way to training, only days before his match against Chelsea.

Care a damn about that Ferrari. Ronaldo was unhurt and safe what is more important.... he is more expensive than that Ferrari.
