Jaromir Jagr, two-time ice hockey world champion with the Czech Republic, was involved in a serious car accident on Wednesday. With any luck, Jagr will remain unharmed after colliding with a tram.
Fortunately, Jaromir Jagr survived a serious car accident with a tram in Pilsen on Wednesday uninjured. The great ice hockey idol of the Czech Republic shared a photo of his badly damaged car on Facebook.
“It was my fault,” Jagr said, adding, “I was going to go through the intersection. I checked one side and left at the right time. But there was a lot of traffic and I didn’t have time to react to the tram who was driving at high speed in the same direction as me.”
Jagr only noticed the tram coming in “half a meter away”. Despite the violent collision, he was able to get out of his car without injuries. “I thought this was the end of me. I have always believed that a higher power has her hand over me and today I saw it again. Thank God,” says Jagr. “The most important thing is that nothing happened to the passengers on the tram.”
The 50-year-old played 1,733 games in the American NHL between 1990 and 2018 and scored a total of 766 goals. In 2005 and 2010 Jagr won the Ice Hockey World Championship with the Czech Republic. The 1998 Olympic gold in Nagano is one of his career highlights. Even at the age of 50, he is still active on the ice. Jagr is now chasing goals for HC Kladno in his home country. He is far from thinking about the end of his career.

Bayern have big plans. The transfer of Liverpool star Sadio Mané is increasingly likely. But the Senegalese would not come as a replacement for Robert Lewandowski. Rather, it would probably result in the sale of Serge Gnabry.
Jürgen Klinsmann is familiar with Hertha BSC. After the club’s rescue, the short-term coach gives an interview and says that the club will never be successful without a new stadium.
When will Robert Lewandowski leave FC Bayern? The Pole wants to leave immediately, the Munich team want to hold him for a while. Either way, the relationship seems broken. According to a report, it all started with a delicate statement on TV.
