Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo escapes injury in horror smash Thursday despite writing off his Ferrari in a horrible car crash near Manchester airport.

Ronaldo's Ferrari was collided with a roadside barrier while he was driving to training. The luxury sports car's front end was smashed to pieces and it lost a wheel.

Visible skid marks were clearly seen leading up to the crash scene.

A photographer who arrived shortly afterwards described the 23-year-old Portugal winger's bright-red car as a terrible mess.

Officers attended and discovered a Ferrari had collided with a barrier, a Greater Manchester Police said in a statement. No one is believed to have been injured.

Police officer Nigel Snell said that, given the damage to the car, it was fortunate that Ronaldo was not injured.

The Ferrari went straight into the wall, his front left-hand wheel came off and then Ronaldo got out of the car, Jody Lomax who witnessed the accident testified. I was shocked. Anyway he was all right, he was walking, a bit shaken, Obviously I was stunned at seeing a Ferrari go in the wall and seeing Ronaldo.

A spokeswoman for United said, Ronaldo had not required treatment for shock or any other injuries and would be fit to play in Sunday's Premier League showdown with Chelsea. Cristiano is fine; It was on his way to training. He did not receive any treatment. He has trained this morning with the team and is OK.
