Schoolboy injured in Steven Gerrard car accident

England international footballer Steven Gerrard has been involved in a car accident with a young boy, various newspapers have revealed.

According to reports in the Telegraph and the Guardian, the Liverpool captain was driving through Merseyside in a black Bentley convertible when a ten-year-old child ran into the road and collided with the side of his car.

The road traffic accident happened outside a school in Southport and is said to have resulted in the youngster, a Manchester United fan, suffering a broken leg.

No blame is being attached to the midfield dynamo and the star was reported to be visibly upset by the car accident.

An eyewitness told journalists, "He was kneeling over him and you could see there were tears in Stevie's eyes. He was really upset to see the little lad like that.

"Steve was really pale and shocked. He stayed with the lad while the paramedics were treating him and giving him oxygen before they moved him."

Another eyewitness explained how the road accident happened, saying, "There were two cars parked outside the school and the little boy ran out in between them and ran into the side of the big black car.

"It looked like he got hit by the wing mirror and was knocked to the ground."

With the popular footballer seemingly not to blame for the car accident, it is unlikely a personal injury compensation claim will be made by the injured boy's family.
