Lazio captain Ciro Immobile walked away without suffering any serious injuries after his car collided with a tram on Sunday morning.
The Italy striker was reportedly taken to the Agostino Gemelli IRCCS University Hospital following the crash in Rome.
It was reported Immobile’s two daughters were also in his vehicle when the accident occurred in the Italian captain.
Lazio revealed in a statement that the 33-year-old sustained a distortion trauma of the spine and a compound fracture of his rib.
Immobile, who remains under observation in hospital in the Eternal City, said at the scene: “The tram ran a red light. Luckily I’m fine, my arm just hurts a little.”
Video footage showed substantial damage to the front of Immobile’s car.
Immobile scored his 12th goal of the season from the penalty spot in second-placed Lazio’s 3-0 win over Spezia on Friday.
