Solano escapes from high-speed car crash
Newcastle winger Nolberto Solano has escaped unscathed from a car accident in his native Peru, according to reports in South America.
The Peru international apparently lost control of his car at speed on Sunday, hitting the pavement and then a tree which overturned the vehicle before it burst into flames.
Solano, on holiday in Lima, underwent tests in hospital but suffered only a minor injury to his forehead.
'Thank God I'm fine,' he said.
'It was because of driving fast. I hit the pavement and lost control of the car.
'I think I've felt the time-changing between England and Peru.'
