Footballer Crashes Car into Petrol Station Watch Video

By Austin Amuzie - Monday, October 8, 2012

Belgian international footballer Jonathan Legear has said he was "only slightly" over the drink-drive limit after crashing his car into a petrol station.
The video above shows terrifying CCTV footage of Legear's Porsche ploughing into an Esso forecourt shop at around 5.30am on Sunday.
The incident occurred in the Flanders town of Tongeren, where Legear - capped twice by his country in 2010 - was spending the weekend having not been selected by his Russian club Terek Grozny.
Legear is reported to have accidentally pressed the accelerator pedal instead of the brake, sending his car through a glass door into the shop, sending an estimated 1,000 cans of drink flying.
Amazingly only one man, a 21-year-old from Tongeren, suffered minor injuries, however Legear caused significant damage.
An Esso spokesperson said: "The pump automisation has been destroyed. We estimate the amount of damage between 250,000 and 300,000 euros.
"He said he would repay all the damage. Apparently he was returning from a night out."
Legear has apologised for the crash, saying in a statement: "I am thinking particularly of those present at the time of the accident and those who could be affected at any level. I have already asked by advisors to contact them.
"I accept the consequences of the accident under the law.
"Contrary to the judgment already made by some media, I was not in a state of deep intoxication and my blood alcohol level was only slightly above the legal limit."
Police seized the 25-year-old's licence pending a judicial investigation into the incident.
In 2009, Legear was sentenced to 50 hours of community service after crashing his BMWX5 into a house returning from a night out.
