Mumbai: West Indies paceman Oshane Thomas was involved in a car crash in Jamaica on Sunday, 16 February, but has escaped with minor injuries.
The Jamaica Observer quoted Thomas’ agent Mark Neita as saying that the player was “at home resting” following a collision with another vehicle on the motorway. The impact caused his car to overturn, but he escaped serious injury.
He was taken to Spanish Town Hospital, according to the report, for treatment and scans before being released. The West Indies Players’ Association wished him a speedy recovery in a statement.
“The West Indies Players’ Association (WIPA) extends best wishes to West Indies and Jamaica fast-bowler Oshane Thomas who was involved in a motor vehicle accident on Sunday, February 16 in Jamaica,” the statement said.
“Thomas was reportedly involved in a two-vehicle collision on Highway 2000 near Old Harbour in St. Catherine and was taken to hospital. WIPA’s executive and staff would like to extend our sympathies to Oshane. We wish for him a speedy and full recovery.”
The West Indies pacer has played 20 ODIs and 10 T20Is so far, but was left out of the side to tour Sri Lanka this month. He is due to turn out for Rajasthan Royals in the IPL from next month, after they picked him up for his base price of INR 5,000,000.
