Ex-Liverpool Star Riise, Daughter Badly Hurt In Car Crash

Former Liverpool and Norway star left-back John Arne Riise and his 19-year-old daughter were hospitalised after being involved in a car accident at 2am on Tuesday night.

Both of them were on their way back to Alesund, having been to Tonsberg, when Riise was forced to swerve off the road, hitting his car into the railings at the side of the road.

Riise and his daughter Ariana were still conscious when they were taken to the hospital.

They were released from hospital on Wednesday morning.

According to Riise’s agent, Erland Bakke, speaking with Norwegian outlet Dagbladet: “He drove her home to Ålesund, and just before they arrived, something on the road caused John Arne Riise to quickly turn left, and drive into the road rails.

“Both are well under the circumstances, they will remain in the hospital until this morning.”

There is no suspicion that anything criminal has happened.
