Celtic star Leigh Griffiths in lucky escape after three-car crash in Lanarkshire


CELTIC star Leigh Griffiths had a lucky escape after he was involved in a car crash.

The 30-year-old’s Audi was involved in a three motor smash at a busy roundabout near his home on Sunday night.

It’s thought the accident happened after cars stopped to let an ambulance on a 999 call take priority on the Bellshill bypass in Lanarkshire.

Fortunately, there was only minor damage to the cars involved and no injuries or further police action.

An onlooker said: “I recognised Griffiths’ black Audi and saw him at the side of it.

"It looked like everyone was OK but like anyone in that position, you are a bit shocked.

"It appeared the drivers were swapping details but that was about it.”

Today, smashed bits of a car were lying at the side of the road where the prang took place.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “About 7.49pm on Sunday, 18 October, 2020 a three vehicle minor road traffic crash happened on the B7071 in Bothwell.

”There were no injuries and no further police action.”

In May last year, Scotland international Griff was convicted of clocking up his third speeding offence by doing 54mph in a 40mph zone in Edinburgh.

Justice Hillary Stevenson fined him £500 and endorsed his driving licence with three points which took him up to nine, one offence away from a road ban.

Griffiths came on as a sub in the 2-0 defeat by Rangers at Celtic Park on Saturday.

He’s recently returned to the squad after being slaughtered by boss Neil Lennon for piling on the pounds during lockdown.

In July, we revealed he was spending the Covid-19 stay-at-home period making Tiktok videos impersonating Freddie Mercury, film stars and even Lennon.
