Former England footballer Andy Carroll was involved in a horrific head-on collision.
His £130,000 Mercedes GLS SUV collided with a Ford Fiesta, maneuvering him 30 meters up the road.
Witnesses living on the residential street told how the ex-Liverpool, Newcastle and West Ham striker looked “dazed and completely shocked” as he climbed out of his monster engine.
The ponytailer, 33, then quickly went to check on the condition of the three people in the red Fiesta.
A front wheel of Carroll’s black Merc came off. Side panels and part of the bumper were also smashed.
Witnesses said Carroll, 33, who was behind the wheel, was breathalyzed with the driver of the Fiesta. No arrests were made.
Carroll and a male pal with him escaped injury.
A male Fiesta passenger in his 50s was taken to hospital after complaining of chest pains.
Steve Garboulb witnessed the crash in Romford, east London, at 3.25pm on Saturday and said: “It was fortunate that no one died.
“The Fiesta and Mercedes collided head-on and another vehicle was hit in the carnage. It was a crazy accident.”
John Cooper, who lives nearby, said: “I heard the most terrifying bang.
“I saw Andy Carroll get out of his vehicle. He wandered around in a daze.
“Andy was shocked but said to me, ‘What do you think of my car?’ I replied, “I think it’s a write-off, mate.”
The police investigated.
Carroll – who has nine caps for England – spent the second half of last season with Championship side West Bromwich Albion but his contract was not renewed.
He was asked for an opinion.
