Harry Kane’s children injured in Germany car crash

91

Harry Kane’s three oldest children have been hospitalized with minor injuries following their involvement in a three-car collision in Germany.

The collision occurred on Monday at 17:15 BST near Munich, where the England captain is currently representing Bayern Munich.

A local volunteer fire chief informed the BBC that everyone involved was “extremely fortunate” that no one sustained serious injuries.

A spokesperson for Kane added: “They are fine and only went to hospital for a routine check-up.”

According to German newspaper Bild, the striker had recently arrived in London for his team’s Champions League quarter-final match against Arsenal the next day when the accident occurred.

The Bavarian Police stated that a Renault, carrying four individuals, was in the process of turning into a junction when it collided with an oncoming Mercedes transporting Kane’s children, aged between three and seven, on State Road 2071 in Schaftlarn. Subsequently, the Renault also collided with a Land Rover.

Bavarian Police further reported that all nine individuals involved sustained minor injuries, with one woman being airlifted to the hospital.

Speaking to BBC News, Hohenschäftlarn Volunteer Fire Department chief Daniel Buck said: “The cars had a lot of damage – all of the cars. The first thing that we were seeing was a lot of injured people from all the cars.

“The good news was nobody had really strong injuries, more minor injuries, like they have pain in the neck from the head up, normally typical for a car accident.

“Thank God nobody was really injured. It was really lucky for all the people.”

Authorities are conducting an investigation into the crash.

Kane signed a four-year contract with Bayern Munich in 2023 following his departure from Tottenham.

He shares four children with his wife Kate: Ivy, aged seven; Vivienne, aged five; Louis, aged three; and their youngest, baby Henry, born last August. Reports suggest that the youngest child was not present in the car at the time of the incident.

Kane’s family initially remained in London following his £86.4m move, but earlier this year the family reportedly moved into a mansion in an area nicknamed the “Beverly Hills of Bavaria”.

European football journalist Guillem Balague told BBC Radio 5 Live’s Euro Leagues Show this week that Kane was settling in well.

“He has adapted so quickly. His four kids and wife are there, he is trying to learn German,” he said.
