According to reports coming out of Argentina, Maradona crashed his car into a bus near his home in Ezeiza, on the outskirts of Buenos Aires. Ole reports that Maradona and his girlfriend Veronica, a passenger in his car, were both taken to the local hospital as a precaution, but both suffered only minor injuries.
Maradona's doctor said he was under observation for a knee injury, while his girlfriend hurt her hip.
UPDATE: Ole spoke to Veronica's brother, who says that Maradona's car skidded as they left the house and hit the bus. Veronica's injury was slightly worse since she didn't have her seat belt on at the time. The couple are fine, though.
So what have we learned from this? Maradona wears his seat belt.
