England footballer Trent Alexander-Arnold was involved in a minor car crash after a pylon was blown over in strong winds.
Alexander-Arnold, 25, hit the breaks before colliding with a white BMW X5 and was seen getting out and speaking to the other driver, The Sun reported.
His agent was contacted by PA, but declined to comment on the story.
On Friday a Cheshire Police spokesperson said: “At 10.34am this morning, we were called to reports of a road traffic collision involving a black Range Rover and a BMW.
“An electricity pole had fallen into the road, causing the accident.
“Nobody was injured and everything was cleared by 1.05pm.
“We called the energy company and had the electricity turned off.”
The incident came ahead of Saturday’s Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton.
