Witnesses said Carroll was left ‘shocked and dazed’

Andy Carroll was involved in a ‘head-on’ car crash last weekend, with witnesses saying he was left ‘shocked and dazed.’

Carroll was pictured standing alongside his £130,000 Mercedes, which had crashed into a Ford Fiesta,  in the Romford area of east London on Saturday afternoon.

The Sun reported that the 33-year-old was left ‘dazed and in utter shock’ before going to check on the three passengers inside the Fiesta.

A picture of the incident on social media shows heavy damage to the former England international’s vehicle, with a wheel from the car also appearing to be missing.

Witnesses say that the forward was breathalysed at the scene, but no arrests were made.

One local resident said it was luck that nobody had been killed. “It was lucky no one died. The Fiesta and Mercedes collided head-on and another vehicle was hit in the carnage. It was a freak accident,” he told The Sun.

Another said: “I heard the most awful bang. I saw Andy Carroll emerge from his vehicle. He was wandering around in a daze.”

Carroll is currently without a club after leaving West Bromwich Albion at the end of last season. The forward had been linked with their neighbouring rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers, but they opted to sign Diego Costa instead after an appeal for a work permit was accepted.

The former Newcastle striker is now reportedly in talks with Reading, where he spent the first half of the 2021-2022 campaign. During his time at the Championship club Carroll scored two goals in eight appearances before leaving to join West Bromwich in January.
