Breaking News

0121-west-ham-swns-01A Premier League soccer player reportedly smashed his Lamborghini into a garden in England this week -- after sideswiping a Mini -- but remarkably, he's okay. 

According to several local reports, the guy behind the wheel was Diafra Sakho -- a striker for West Ham United.

26-year-old Sakho reportedly lost control of the Lambo around 9 PM on Sunday night and ended up in the garden of a home in Hornchurch, Essex. 

0121-west-ham-swns-02The homeowner described the scene to local media outlets ... saying, "At around nine o'clock last night we heard it going up the road, it was unmistakable - it's a racing car isn't it?"

"We heard it accelerate and then just heard a big bang, like an explosion and a thud -- that's when I walked out. Lucky there was no one about. Lucky no one was hurt."

Sakho later tweeted about the incident ... saying, "Thank you for the messages. Was involved in a small car accident this evening. Thankfully no one was hurt."
