Everton striker Louis Saha, 32, was involved in a traffic incident on 27th February 2011 at 8.54pm. The incident happened on Altrincham road in Wilmslow, Cheshire. Former Manchester United star Saha lost control of his Ferrari and careered into a fence, no other vehicles were involved. Police reports suggest that the Frenchman was lucky to be alive after causing extensive damage to his Ferrari, but still managed to walk away unscathed from the accident.

It is unknown which Ferrari he was driving, but Saha was spotted in Wilmslow not long before the accident, driving his Black Ferrari 458 Italia. All 1,200 Ferrari 458 Italia’s built were recalled in September 2010, after a fire risk was discovered in the wheel arch of the supercars. The problem was traced to adhesive that was used in the wheel arch assemblies, which could catch fire when heated up by the exhaust system.

A similar traffic incident happened in January 2009 when Cristiano Ronaldo crashed his Ferrari 599 GTB in the Tunnels that run under the Manchester Airport Runways. The Ferrari was written off after only 2 days of ownership.
