Revealed: Marcus Rashford crashed his £700k Range Rover into car being driven by 74-year-old grandmother – who he ‘immediately checked was okay before swapping details’
- The woman was said to be returning home from babysitting her granddaughter
Marcus Rashford crashed his £700,000 Range Rover into a car being driven by a 74-year-old grandmother, it was been reported, before immediately checking to see if she was okay and swapping insurance details.
The football star bumped his swanky car outside Manchester United’s Carrington training ground at around midnight last Saturday, damaging both cars and mowing down a traffic light camera post.
The forward and the woman, who was said to be returning home from babysitting, were reportedly left shaken and were breathalysed on the spot by police officers.
No arrests were made, however, and police officers did not call an ambulance for the female driver as she did not want to go to hospital.
A source told The Sun: ‘Both drivers were badly shaken. Marcus immediately checked to see if the woman was okay and swapped details.’
Another added: ‘The woman was on her way home from babysitting her grand-daughter. She’s a cautious, careful driver and even more so when it’s raining — which it was.

Police attended the scene and rediverted traffic away from the scene of the accident
‘The impact caused the airbags to go off. She was very, very shaken and confused. She’s not a football fan and didn’t have any idea who Marcus Rashford is.’
Maintenance engineer Peter Laycock, 36. caught the aftermath of the crash on his phone, arriving at the scene around 12.20am.
He explained that ‘loads of police’ had blocked the road, asking vehicles to turn around because of the debris.
Mr Laycock said he saw people wearing United clothes while bystanders whispered ‘it’s Marcus Rashford’s car’.
Footage showed Rashford’s bumper ripped off the rear while hazard lights flashed.
The incident followed United’s 1-0 win away at Burnley in a 40mph zone on Carrington Spur near the Aon training complex.

Another eye-witness filming at the scene, who was being diverted a different route home by police as a result of Rashford’s crash, claimed Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes was quick to check on his team-mate as he too was heading home from the training ground.
While Rashford has been left shaken up by the crash he avoided any injury and has not yet been ruled out of contention to feature in Tuesday’s Carabao Cup meeting with Crystal Palace.
The 25-year-old is an avid collector of luxury cars and recently added a third Rolls Royce – a £560,000 Cullinan Blue Shadow – to his growing stable of supercars.
Other cars in Rashford’s expensive collection include a £280,000 McLaren 765 Long Tail and a £350,000 Lamborghini Urus Performante.
