It could have ended differently but it turned out all right. Manchester United winger Cristiano Ronaldo was shaken when he got out of his completely crushed Ferrari after he lost control of the car on the A538 Wilmslow Road, near Manchester Airport. The car spun on the side of the tunnel and then it impacted to cause it to lose a front wheel and then ricocheted off the wall and then crashed. Team mate Edwin Van der Sar was travelling behind CR7 car when it happened. The two, in separate cars, were on their way to training at United’s Carrington Complex. Police who started their inquiry is going to question Van Der Sar on the speed of CR7 driving.

It looks like CR7 was not able to handle the speed of the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, a V12 engined car that can do a 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds and it is hugely fast with sensational acceleration. He imported the car just two days ago from Portugal after spending his New Year there with family and agent. The front of the car was completely totalled and it was indeed a miracle that CR7 was unharmed. Thank goodness he still have a fleet of cars to drive.

Inquiries regarding the crash is continuing and it looks like the investigation will focus on the speed of CR7 driving as he gave a negative breath test when the officers arrived on the scene of the accident.

What were you thinking CR7? Are you testing the car to see if it could DIVE?
