Sky Blues boss Mark Robins confirmed after the final whistle that defender Dom Hyam had been involved in a car accident on Wednesday morning.
The defender was on his way to training when he was hit, at what Robins confirmed was 100 miles per hour.
Dom was rushed to the University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire, where he was treated by staff and Robins went to sit with him.
The manager confirmed that Hyam has come away from the accident with cuts and bruises but had been ‘very lucky’.
He said: “On Wednesday he had a serious car crash and he was taken to hospital via ambulance and he was looked after really well by the people at the University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire.
“I went and sat with him until his family were able to be with him.
“He’s got cuts to the head and bruises, but he has been a really lucky lad, he rang me from the scene of the accident, and I asked to speak to the paramedics because he sounded concussed and you could tell he was out of it and it was really difficult.
“The paramedics told me what happened to him and he was rushed to the hospital, so I left Aidy in charge of the team and I went to the hospital to check he was alright.
“Thankfully he’s going to be ok, but he won’t be available for me for a bit of time.
“He has cuts to the head and face, they were taking glass out his head. He got hit at 100 miles per hour, so he really is a lucky lad, but he’s ok and they did look after him well.
“It was a worrying time, but thankfully he will be ok and will be back with us soon as he as made a full recovery.”
Everyone at Coventry City would like to wish Dom a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him back out in a City shirt as soon as possible.
