Argentina Soccer Legend Hit by Bus

Diego Maradona, one of Argentina’s soccer legends, was reportedly involved in a car accident outside the outskirts of Buenos Aires on Monday night.

Maradona and his girlfriend Veronica Ojeda apparently suffered minor injuries once their car was hit by a bus just hours before Argentina’s Copa America match against Costa Rica.

Sky News also reported that him and his girlfriend were transported to the hospital and both suffered from cuts and bruises.

The former Argentina coach apparently hurt his knee in the accident. The Hospital de Ezeiza lists both now as being “in perfect condition”.

Ojeda’s brother said Maradona’s car had “skidded and collided with a bus” once they left their house. He also explained that his sister’s injuries were worse because she never wore her seat belt.

Maradona has been involved in more than one car accident in the past two years at least.

Maradona apparently also ran over the foot of a cameraman in May 2010 while he was driving into his team’s training ground.
