Balotelli escapes unhurt from a car crash

London: Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli’s Bentley collided with another vehicle in Medlock Street, near Deansgate, in Manchester City center, but is believed to have escaped unhurt from the incident.

A passenger of one of the cars was taken to hospital, as a precautionary measure.

“ Shortly after 3.15 pm, police were called to Medlock Street, Manchester City center to attend to reports of a collision between two cars,” The BBC quoted a Greater Manchester Police’s statement, as saying.

“The passenger of one of the cars was taken to hospital for precautionary measures. Inquiries are ongoing,” the statement added.

Balotelli joined Manchester City in 2010 for a reported 24 million after moving from Inter Milan, and has been in the news since then for a series of misdemeanors.

Last month, Balotelli was asked to leave the Trafford Centre after refusing to take down the hood of his top.
