SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) — A Chilean hospital said Tuesday that star midfielder Arturo Vidal has escaped serious injury after reportedly crashing a Ferrari in the outskirts of Santiago.
The San Luis de Buin hospital confirmed that Vidal was treated for minor injuries in its emergency room. Television images showed the Juventus midfielder leaving the hospital in the back seat of a police car, but no other details were immediately available.
