Swiss police have now recreated the accident in which former Formula 1 world champion Fernando Alonso was left with a damaged jaw.

Alpine F1 driver Fernando Alonso found himself involved in a biking accident that left him with a broken jaw and several broken teeth. Swiss police have now tried to re-create the incident in order to gain an understanding of what transpired. As reported by RacingNews365.com , Spanish driver Fernando Alonso met with an accident while he was riding his bicycle in preparation for the upcoming season. While the Spanish driver is okay, sustaining no serious injuries which could hamper his return to the sport, the details of the accident remain unclear. Spanish publication Marca offers further insight into the matter using the police report as a means to detail the event. "The local police announced that just before two o'clock yesterday (Thursday) in Viganello, a 42-year-old motorist from Lugano was driving on Via La Santa towards Pregassona," the police statement read. The statement then goes on to cite the details of the driver involved in the incident and a step by step guide of what exactly transpired. "Shortly before two in the afternoon in Viganello, a 42-year-old Swiss driver living in Lugano, was driving along Via Santa in the direction of Pregassona," the police statement continued. "According to the initial reconstruction and for reasons that the investigating police will establish, while making a left turn to enter a supermarket, he collided with a 39-year-old Spanish citizen, who was riding his bicycle and passing through a line of parked cars on the right. The collision occurred with the right side of the car. "Officers of the Cantonal Police in support of the local police of Lugano, as well as a team from the Green Cross of Lugano, arrived at the scene of the accident and after applying the initial treatment, they took him by ambulance to the hospital."
