It's nothing new I know, given that celebs/sports stars have a long publicised history with car troubles, but it's still nonetheless perplexing given the mental and physical abilities of top athletes. Such skills are transferrable to everyday life. Perhaps it requires conscious effort to do so, which some have chosen not to when it comes to driving.

M3 abuser. They should stop selling him those cars.

Clumsy olymipian! He probably curbs his cars regularly. Those pics were examples of hard curbs.

+1 Just thinking the same thing re Lindsey Lohan. I've managed to drive for 35 years without so much as a fender bender. Go figure. I've lost track of how many incidents LoLo's been involved in, from fender benders to total write-offs. Some people just shouldn't drive.

Maybe he has been driving for only 3 years, my nephew had at least 3 accidents in the first 3 years he started driving. And every time it was the other guy's fsult.

Somehow, when they get into a car, what makes them great just goes out of the window.
24 year old kids have accidents all the time,being from Jamaica he probably didnt start driving till he started makin some good money( 20-21).
i guess it's different when you re a professional athlete.

Sometimes being on top of your game comes down to having good genes,a predisposition etc. for a sport.

In a nutshell,you can be a great chess player and be bad at driving.

Injury to the feet? The most important part of his body....
He might as well just run everywhere instead of buying the third M3.

haha, lived in Jamaica for three years. Not only is the driving situation there completely INSANE, but the fact that he's doing it in a car that has at least 4X the power of most cars in the country will definitely put him in compromising situations (along with the huge egos that a lot of Jamaicans tend to have). In this case, it's ONLY his second :-(

The thing is he isn't just having a couple of minor dents, the dude needs to skill up a bit with his driving tbh.
