Arsenal Player Nicklas Bendtner Aston Martin Crash

Nicklas Bendtner, striker for Premier League's North London Arsenal, wrecked his Aston Martin DBS on the A1 in spectacular fashion, crashing through a fence and smashing into trees.  The 21-year-old walked away uninjured but the $270K Aston was totaled.  No other vehicles were involved in the accident. 

Bendtner's father has said the Arsenal striker knows he is "lucky" to have escaped from a car crash earlier this week without more serious injuries.

Initially the crash was referred to as a "minor accident".  The pictures tell otherwise.

The Danish international is understood to have sustained cuts to his knee and pains in his shoulder

The 21 year-old's father said that despite being shaken up from the accident, his son was exercising gently again and appreciated how lucky he had been.

"He trained by himself on Monday on a bike in order to be careful and watch out," Thomas Bendtner said. "He is badly shaken and has some bruises but knows he was very lucky."

Bendtner is expected to be back in action this weekend for Arsenal's Premier League trip to Blackburn.

Bendtner is no stranger to "accidents".

On 5 May 2009 the 21-year-old was controversially shown leaving a night club hours after Arsenal's 3-1 home defeat by Manchester United in the Champions League semi-final. Bendtner was pictured with his belt undone - and we're not talking about his seat belt here - his jeans were pulled down.

"I may be young, but my actions were a poor error of judgment and something I deeply regret," said the Dane. Bendtner was a second-half substitute for Arsenal, who lost 4-1 on aggregate to defending champions United.
