Peru player Advincula injured in traffic accident

Hoffenheim says its Peru midfielder Luis Advincula has been

injured in a traffic accident.

The Bundesliga club says Advincula’s car slid off the road on

Thursday morning in Sinsheim, near the team’s headquarters. No

other car was involved.

Advincula is still undergoing tests but so far only ”light

injuries” have been determined. Spokesman Holger Tromp says

Advincula will remain in a hospital under observation.

Advincula signed for Hoffenheim in January and has played one

match.

Hoffenheim midfielder Boris Vukcevic sustained serious head

injuries in a car crash in September and was seven weeks in a

coma.
