Premiership striker Louis Saha has escaped unharmed after crashing his Ferrari on a country road, police sources confirmed.

The 32-year-old Everton star was driving his blue Ferrari 458 in Wilmslow, Cheshire, shortly before 9pm on Sunday night when he lost control of the car and collided with a fence.

The Frenchman, who was alone in the vehicle, was unhurt and no other vehicles were involved.

The accident happened on the A538 Altrincham Road, near a tunnel where former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo crashed his Ferrari in January 2009.

A spokeswoman for Cheshire Police said: "At 8.54pm last night police were called to Altrincham Road, Wilmslow, to the report of a single vehicle road traffic collision.

"Officers attended the scene where a blue Ferrari 458 had collided with a fence outside the tunnel.

"The 32-year-old driver was uninjured.

"Inquiries are continuing."

Saha played in Everton's 2-0 home win over Sunderland at Goodison Park on Saturday.

He signed for the Merseyside club in 2008 after four and a half years with Manchester United.
