Fastest Man on the Planet Injured in Car Crash

The Jamaican sprinter who set the 100m world record at the Beijing Olympics suffered mild injuries today after crashing his BMW on a highway in his homeland.

Usain Bolt
-- who ran the 100m dash in a mind-blowing 9.69 seconds last year -- and a female passenger were taken to a hospital in the Saint Catherine Parish after Bolt lost control of his car while (get this) he was allegedly speeding on a rain-slicked highway.

Officials say Bolt -- who's due to compete in a 150m race in England in a few weeks -- is undergoing tests to see if he'll be healthy enough to compete.
