Ronaldo facing insurance claim over tunnel crashFebruary 21st, 2009 - 1:49 pm ICT by IANS
London, Feb 21 (DPA) The company that runs Manchester airport confirmed that it is pursuing an insurance claim against Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Manchester United winger crashed his Ferrari in an airport tunnel last month, causing an estimated 20,000 pounds ($28,900) worth of damage to brickwork, railings and an exit door.
He walked away uninjured, and was given a lift to training by his team-mate Edwin van der Saar, who later passed along the same road.
An airport spokesman said: “Part of the airport’s infrastructure was damaged in a road traffic accident and as is normal practice, our insurers are talking to the other party’s insurance company.”
Greater Manchester police are still investigating the incident.
