Posted by Dresonic on April 29, 2009

WORLD 100 and 200-metre record holder Usain Bolt has been admitted to hospital, reportedly in good condition, following a motor car accident along the Vineyard Toll section of Highway 2000, St Catherine today at about 1:30 pm. Bolt’s manager Norman Peart said that based upon advice from accident and emergency doctors at Spanish Town Hospital, where the athlete is being treated, his only injury are three thorns that became stuck in his feet after he exited the vehicle.

He was confirmed to compete in this Saturday’s Jamaica Invitational at the National Stadium in Kingston. Bolt’s car had been travelling into Kingston from Clarendon the accident occurred. The road was slippery from afternoon showers. When this reporter arrived upon the scene at approximately 2:30 pm the BMW car was being towed from the ditch. Examination of the car by this reporter revealed no blood inside the car and no airbags had been visibly deployed. Both front tyres were punctured and the left-front wheel was almost torn off. The front windscreen was shattered while the back windscreen was totally removed. A member of a Highway 2000 wrecker crew said that there were tyre marks for about 50 metres before the car came off the road.
