Boonen uninjured in auto accident

Tom Boonen was uninjured in an auto accident Saturday morning, when his car was forced off the road.

According to the Gazeta van Antwerpen, the 28 year-old was on his way to the airport Saturday morning. In the town of Postel, he swerved to avoid another car, went off the road and hit a tree. He was not injured, and was able to catch his flight.

The Quick Step sprinter has already lost his licence twice this year, for two weeks each time. He was stopped for speeding and drunk driving in June and for speeding in April. In April 2007 he crashed his Lamborghini when he swerved to avoid a cat in the road.
