Usain Bolt: "Mi good man. Mi alright..."

Usain Bolt wrecks his BMW M3, but escapes with minor cuts and brushes. Glad he's OK...
(CNN) -- The world's fastest man, Usain Bolt, has escaped serious injury in a car crash in his native Jamaica which wrecked his high-speed sports car.

Jamaican flyer Bolt claimed 100 meters gold in Beijing in a new world record time. The 22-year-old, who was driving his BMW M3 with two female passengers, lost control and went off a rain-soaked road.

The car ended up overturned in a ditch and Bolt and his passengers had to clamber out through a bed of thorns before being taken to hospital in Spanish Town, near Kingston, as a precaution.

Bolt was released after three hours, with his feet strapped with bandages, after undergoing a minor operation to remove embedded thorns from his foot. He told a local reporter: "Me good man. Me all right, a just few cuts man, me all right."

As a result of the accident, Bolt will miss Saturday's Jamaica International Invitational meeting and is expected to be sidelined for at least a week.
