Bolt escapes unhurt in a minor car crash
The Olympic champion crashed his luxury BMW motor car into guard rails at the busy Half Way Tree intersection shortly after 5 a.m. (1000 GMT) Sunday.
A source close to the star athlete reported that he was not hurt in the crash and was resting comfortably at home.
According to police reports, Bolt, who is preparing to defend his 100 and 200 metres titles at this summer's London Olympics, was on his way home from a party when he crashed his car.
His friend and fellow sprint rival Asafa Powell was also at the scene of the crash, but was in another motor vehicle.
Bolt and Powell had just returned to the island after competing at the Diamond League meeting in Oslo, Norway Thursday.
The 25-year-old won the 100 metres there in 9.79 seconds, beating Powell who finished second.
In 2009, Bolt crashed his BMW M3 sports car into a ditch along Highway 2000.
He sustained minor injuries to his feet in that crash.
Bolt and Powell are expected to feature prominently in Jamaica's highly anticipated National Championships at the end of June.
