Coleman's Jaguar car crashed through a wall and collided with a tree late on Tuesday night in Bletchingley, Surrey. He was taken to East Surrey hospital where he had an operation on his right leg, having broken both fibula and tibia. Fears that he had broken both legs in the accident, after which he had to be cut from his car, were unfounded

Russell Kempton, who was one of the Surrey ambulancemen on the scene revealed that Coleman had been in a lot of pain duing the rescue.
"Our paramedics found a Jaguar car had crashed through a fence and hit a tree. The driver was trapped for the best part of an hour and it was necessary to give him some pain relief. "A local doctor came from Redhill and administered the pain relief while the emergency crews worked to free him."

Kempton added that Coleman had broken his leg in several places between the ankle and the knee and had an open wound.

The Fulham ace was the only person in the car and was conscious but could not free himself from the wreckage. A passer-by saw the smashed car and rang the police on his mobile phone shortly after the accident, which happened about 9.45pm. Police were unable to confirm whether the footballer, who has won 31 caps for his country, had been drinking and driving but said they are keen to speak to him.
