A narrow escape for Kemar Roach

Barbados: West Indies pacer Kemar Roach has escaped with minor injury following a nasty car crash on a rain-lashed Bridgetown road.

Roach was reportedly speeding away when his BMW sedan flipped over several times before landing in the 3Ws park.

The 25-year-old suffered a head injury and was taken to a hospital, the Barbados Today online newspaper claimed.

Roach took to Twitter a few hours later after the accident to reveal that he was recovering and in good health.

“Sorry To Scare My Friends, Family And Fans But I’m Straight! Thanks For The Love! #BlessUp,” he tweeted.

According to local media, Roach’s car flipped over several times after he lost control near a traffic light. Two wheels of the car came off. Police are investigating the reasons for the nasty crash. Roach, who had played for Deccan Chargers in the IPL, has played in 23 Tests, 61 One-Day Internationals and 11 T20 Internationals. His last international match for the West Indies was an ODI against Pakistan at Gros Islet in July, 2013. Since then, he has been out of top flight cricket with a shoulder injury.
