Juventus Winger Douglas Costa Escapes Unhurt After Being Involved In Huge Car Crash In Italy

The 28-year-old has struggled for form since joining Juventus on a permanent basis

Juventus and Brazil winger Douglas Costa has escaped unhurt after being involved in a car crash.

The incident occurred on Monday on a motorway in northern Italy as the forward was returning to Turin.

His Jeep Cherokee was involved in a collision with a Fiat Punto, the driver of that car needing to be taken to Biella Hosptial for minor injuries.

It is unclear how the crash started, with the accident being investigated by the Novara Est traffic police. 

Pictures soon emerged on social media showing a huge amount of damage had been done to both vehicles involved.

Costa had taken to Instagram earlier in the day to share a photo of himself sitting behind the wheel. 

Juventus players were not training on Monday as the players had two days off following Saturday’s 3-3 draw against Parma. 

Costa was substituted at half-time during that match after picking up a muscle injury in his left thigh.

The 28-year-old has struggled for form since turning his loan spell from Bayern Munich into a permanent transfer last summer, finding the net just once in 24 appearances so far this term.
