The Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt has escaped injury after minor car accident in Jamaica.

The world record holder for the 100 and 200 metres sprints, was involved in an accident in his BMW in Kingston just after 5am on his way home from a party.

Fellow athlete Asafa Powell was on the scene at the time, but was travelling in another vehicle.

It's Bolt's second accident following the flipping of his BMW sportscar into a ditch in 2009.
