Diego Maradona Car Crash: Argentina Soccer Legend Reportedly Hit By Bus

Argentina soccer legend Diego Maradona was reportedly involved in a car accident on the outskirts of Buenos Aires on Monday night.

According to several reports, Maradona and his girlfriend Veronica Ojeda suffered minor injuries when the car was hit by a bus just hours before Argentina's Copa America match against Costa Rica.

Sky News reported that Maradona and his partner were taken to the hospital and both suffered cuts and bruises

The former Argentina coach was said to have hurt his knee in the accident. But according to the director at Hospital de Ezeiza, both are now "in perfect condition."

Ole spoke to Ojeda's brother, who said that Maradona's car "skidded and collided with a bus" as they left the house. He also said that his sister's injury was a bit worse because she didn't have her seat belt on at the time.

This isn't the first time Maradona has been involved in a car accident.

In May of 2010, Maradona ran over the foot of a cameraman as he was driving into the team's training ground.
