Jacques Kallis met with car accident

Johannesburg: South Africa star batsman Jacques Kallis crashed his car into a gate in the early hours of Tuesday but escaped unharmed, a team spokesman told AFP, denying that alcohol was involved.

Kallis, who scored his first Test double century in a victory over India that finished on Monday, will not miss any Proteas practice or matches as a result of the accident in Cape Town, said team spokesman Michael Owen-Smith.

"Alcohol was not an issue in (the crash)," said Owen-Smith.

"The (local) police didn’t feel there was a need for any breathalyser or any kind of blood test and so that’s the end of the matter."

Owen-Smith said the accident happened around 12:30 am (2230 GMT on Monday), but local media reports said it took place around 2:00 am.(AFP)
