Trent Alexander-Arnold was reportedly involved in a horror car crash hours before the Premier League clash between Liverpool and Everton in the Premier League.
Fortunately, the England defender escaped unscathed and featured in his side’s two-nil victory against Everton.
According to the report, Alexander-Arnold avoided death by inches after a 40ft electricity pylon was ripped up from the ground in 70mph winds.
The report claimed that the pylon hit the car in front of Alexander-Arnold, who was driving a £90,000 Range Rover.
It is believed that the 25-year-old slammed on the brakes before swerving and hitting a BMW X5.
The Liverpool star was then seen getting out of his car to speak to the other driver on a wet country lane near Knutsford, Cheshire.
A source told the publication: “The wind was so powerful it suddenly ripped up the pylon. It was really terrifying. It’s a miracle nobody was hurt. Someone could have easily been killed.
“What are the chances of that happening? Alexander-Arnold must feel like he’s cheated death.
“A few seconds later and it could have gone through his windscreen. It’s absolutely treacherous out there.”
A police statement later read: “At 10.34am this morning we were called to reports of a road traffic collision involving a black Range Rover and a BMW.
“An electricity pole had fallen into the road, causing the accident. Nobody was injured and everything was cleared by 1.05pm. We called the energy company and had the electricity turned off.”
