Eels star in shock­ing car crash

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS - AVA BENNY- MOR­RI­SON

RIS­ING Par­ra­matta Eels star Jae­man Salmon is in hot wa­ter af­ter rolling his Jeep and smash­ing into three cars.

The young NRL five-eighth was taken to hospi­tal by po­lice af­ter the crash yes­ter­day for manda­tory blood and urine tests.

Po­lice said the 19-year-old was driv­ing a white Jeep Chero­kee along Ka­reena Rd, Mi­randa, when it crossed on to the wrong side of the road.

Salmon’s car hit three parked ve­hi­cles be­fore it rolled on to its roof and brought north­bound traf­fic to a halt about 9.10am.

“The driver was taken to Suther­land Hospi­tal for a manda­tory blood sam­ple,” a po­lice spokesman said. “Suther­land po­lice are con­duct­ing in­quiries into the in­ci­dent.”

An Eels spokesman said Salmon has since been re­leased from hospi­tal and the club is pro­vid­ing the teenager and his fam­ily with sup­port.

Salmon joined the Eels at the end of last year on a three-year con­tract.
