Video: Arsenal’s Joe Willock emerges unscathed from frightening car crash

Footage of the moment Arsenal midfielder Joe Willock lost control of his car before drifting off the motorway has emerged online on Thursday.

Gunners star escapes unscathed

The clip in question, which can be seen below, was captured by the dashcam of another car behind Willock’s.

The English youngster seemingly misjudged one of the exits from the M1 motorway, cutting across 3 lanes. Willock’s Mercedes G-Wagon went on to collide with the crash barrier on the side of the road, the impact of which forced a rear wheel to fly off. The jeep then swerved dangerously back to the far lane, before eventually finding its way head-first into a roadside grass verge.

Another nearby driver is said to have emerged to check the scene, later describing Willock as ‘shaken, but fine’, as per the Daily Mail.

The 21-year-old was actually en route to an Arsenal training session when the accident took place, though he was well enough to start in Arsenal’s meeting with Leeds United the following day.

Further reports have confirmed that Mikel Arteta and co. sat down for a conversation with Willock in the aftermath of the incident:
