KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) — World-record holder and Olympic champion Usain Bolt has been in a car crash in Jamaica, but his publicist says he was not injured.

Publicist Carole Beckford says Bolt was returning from a party with friends near dawn Sunday when he was involved in a “fender bender” in Jamaica’s capital. Beckford tells The Associated Press there were “no injuries at all” and the sprinting great is “fine and resting at home.”

Radio Jamaica says former 100-meter world-record holder Asafa Powell was traveling in another car at the time and was on the scene at the time of Bolt’s accident.

Bolt and Powell had just returned to Jamaica after competing at a Diamond League meet in Norway.

A police spokesman could not be immediately reached regarding the accident.
