England footballer Trent Alexander-Arnold was involved in a crash with another car after a pylon was blown over during Storm Babet’s strong winds.
Cheshire Police said no one was hurt in the collision which came as Storm Babet swept across the country – killing three people and causing widespread flooding and high winds.
A spokesperson told Sky News: “At 10.34am, we were called to reports of a road traffic collision involving a black Range Rover and a BMW.
“An electricity pole had fallen into the road, causing the accident.
“Nobody was injured and everything was cleared by 1.05pm.
“We called the energy company and had the electricity turned off.”
Alexander-Arnold, 25, played in today’s Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton which kicked off at 12.30pm.
