Juventus defender Martin Caceres is recovering after a car crash early Sunday.

His Porsche was hit by a car that ran a red light. The Uruguayan was treated for head trauma and facial bruising and cuts.

Juventus says the 25-year-old player is in a good condition and will spend the next few days at the clinic for treatment and tests.

Caceres was taken to the trauma unit at Maria Adelaide Hospital, then moved to the Clinica Fornaca di Sessant.

The club said the diagnosis is a ''head injury, with a lacerated contusion wound to his scalp and right cheekbone.''
