Worrying news today that former Newcastle player Paul Gascoigne is in a “serious but not life-threatening” condition in Newcastle General Hospital after a car crash.
Paul Gascoigne - in serious condition in Newcastle General Hospital
The car crash took place in his home town of Newcastle upon Tyne, and involved a Vauxhall Astra last night around 9:45pm local time at Sandhill, on the Newcastle Quayside.
Gascoigne was a passenger in the car and it reportedly veered off the road and hit a signpost. It does sound a bit like drink was involved and a 36 year-old woman who was presumably driving, has been arrested for drunk-driving.
A spokesperson for Newcastle General Hospital, where Paul was taken, has said today the former Newcastle and England star, and another man, are being treated for their injuries.
The condition of both men is said to be “serious but not life-threatening”.
We have to hope that both of them will make a full and speedy recovery.
