Trent Alexander-Arnold in Car Crash
Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold was involved in a car crash on Friday when a 40ft electricity pylon crashed onto a car in front of his Range Rover.
He had to swerve to avoid the high-voltage power unit and collided with a BMW X5 in doing so.
The power line, that weighs half a ton, careered down on top of the other vehicle at the scene.
Alexander-Arnold and the BMW driver fortunately escaped the incident unhurt.
Alexander-Arnold’s Range Rover was seriously damaged in the crash, with the front-left bumper smashed and missing pieces, and the headlight also smashed.
Electrical wires from inside the vehicle’s bonnet are visible through remnants of the destroyed bumper, and parts of the car are barely hanging on as a result of the impact.
The white BMW is also missing a headlight, and the front-left wheel is sitting on its rim.
There is also a huge crack in the side of the bodywork.
Police were called to the scene and the electrical supply running through the huge pylon was turned off.
Alexander-Arnold was later involved in team training with Liverpool ahead of Saturday’s Merseyside derby clash against Everton at Anfield, where he is expected to start.
Storm Babet Devastation
Devastation has been caused across the country due to the effects of Storm Babet, with a passenger plane also skidding off the runway in Leeds.
It is a miracle that both Alexander-Arnold and the BMW driver escaped the crash unhurt.
The damage to both vehicles is severe, and it is a reminder of the dangers of driving in severe weather conditions.
