Fellow Jamaican sprinter Asafa Powell was traveling in another car at the time and was at the scene of Bolt's accident.

At that meet, Bolt recovered from a poor start to win the 100 meters in 9.79 seconds, beating Powell by 0.06 seconds.

Prior crash: In 2009 Bolt crashed a previous black BMW of his, pictured, flipping it into a ditch but escaping unharmed aside from minor surgery required on his feet

He required minor surgery on his left foot after stepping onto thorns while getting out of the wreckage.
A month after the accident, Bolt told reporters: 'After something like that you look at life through and over, and look at what has gone wrong - where you should improve or should be careful.'
