'Very lucky': Dockers star walks away from scary accident

Australian Associated Press

Star Fremantle Dockers forward Jesse Hogan was taken to hospital on Sunday after flipping his car in an accident in Perth.

Hogan's car flipped on its side after he clipped a parked car in the Perth suburb of Bicton at about 11am AWST on Sunday.

A nearby resident reportedly saw the 24-year-old climb out of his white BMW after the crash.

Hogan was then taken to hospital, where he was cleared of serious damage and discharged a few hours later.

The former Demon was the only person involved in the crash.

Fremantle will give Hogan the day off training on Monday, but he's expected to be back on deck on Tuesday.

The dramatic crash on Sunday came after Hogan was making a strong recovery from foot surgery.

Hogan first injured the navicular bone in his right foot in 2018, and was forced to undergo surgery in July this year after suffering a recurrence.

Hogan has resumed running duties, and the car crash isn't expected to affect his pre-season.

Blues star cops yet another unfortunate injury setback

A new knee injury has ruined Charlie Curnow's AFL pre-season.

The Carlton young gun was undergoing more surgery on Thursday after an accident left him with a fractured right patella bone.

That will sideline him for three to four months.

The 22-year-old key forward, one of Carlton's best young talents, originally needed surgery on his right knee early last month after he was hurt playing social basketball.

Curnow had not played since round 15 because of his right knee and coach David Teague said they had wanted him to do activities such as basketball to test how the joint was recovering.

But this week's new injury is disastrous.

"The recovery time for a fractured knee cap is typically three to four months," said Blues football boss Brad Lloyd.

"This will delay his return to running until the new year, which means it is unlikely he will be available for our pre-season games."
