Ciro Immobile was involved in a fatal accident near Lazio Olympic stadium.
A tram beat the traffic red lights and ran into his car smashing it into pieces.
He was not alone in the car. His children were reportedly with him but were confirmed safe during the autocrash.
However, they were taken to hospital to treat minor shocks. Some passengers in the tram were reportedly injured in the incident but no one was confirmed death.
The driver of the train, according to reports from Italian media, blamed Ciro Immobile for the accident.
He reportedly insisted he is innocent because Crio Immobile oversped and crashed into the tram not the other way round.
However, other witnesses during the terrible incident said the driver of the tram was to be blamed for the crash because he ignored traffic signal and ran into Immobile’s car, smashing it into ruins.
After the accusations by the tram driver, Ciro Immobile issued a statement through his lawyer washing his hands off the incident while returning the blame on the driver.
Immobile said, he “turned to the left and of course it could be seen that it was one side if the car that was hit as the tram jumped on the red light and ran into the car.”
Immobile also confirmed he was hurt in the arm during the incident. His two daughters who were in the car at the time of the incident were hospitalized after the incident.
Italian authorities had commenced investigations into the incident while Immobile followed up all the injured persons in the hospital.
With investigations ongoing, Immobile is already thankful no life was lost and all the injured persons have recovered.
Immobile is a high-profile Italian footballer. He is also a husband and father with an adorable family.
The accident would have been a fatal blow both to his professional and family life hence his red heart message of appreciation.
This season, he has scored 10 goals with 3 assists in 23 Serie A matches for Lazio.
