Crystal Palace star Pape Souare has been airlifted to hospital following a serious crash on the M4 motorway. The 26-year-old suffered injuries to his thigh and jaw bone after he was involved in a two-car smash. According to the Croydon Advertiser, officers were called to the horrendous scene before 12.10pm on Sunday.
London Ambulance service quickly attended to Souare and it is thought that the Premier League star was carefully removed from his Mercedes after the roof was cut off from his car. He was then taken to an East London hospital where he is now receiving treatment. His injuries are not said to be life threatening. Crystal Palace confirmed the incident and a statement on their official website said:“Crystal Palace Football Club regret to confirm that Pape Souare was yesterday involved in a car accident and taken to hospital in London. The player has sustained injuries to his thigh and jaw bone and will remain in hospital whilst he receives treatment. The club are liaising closely with the hospital on his progress and we obviously wish him a speedy recovery.”
