Terrifying footage shows the moment Premier League ace Joe Willock crashed his £140,000 car while on the way to training - losing control as he went round a bend. The Arsenal and England U21s midfielder was said to have been unhurt in the smash, which was caught on dashcam by another motorist. Dramatic video shows Willock, 21, cutting across multiple lanes and racing his Mercedes-Benz G-Class up a slip road to join the M25 near South Mimms, Herts. But he hits a barrier, causing him to lose a wheel and spin out - ending up in a hedge. A man can then be seen stopping to help Willock, who was described as "shaken" - but uninjured. The crash took place at 2:14pm on November 21 - just a day before the young player started in his club's clash with Leeds United. He struggled to make his mark and was substituted after 57 minutes, with the game ending in a 0-0 draw.

A witness to the crash, who asked not to be named, said: "I didn't know who he was. He was a bit shaken, but fine. "I got out of the car and I went to his window, which was blacked out. You could see that he was trying to reverse back out of the verge. "The back wheel was missing but you could see the hub spinning out. He wound the window down and I said: 'You can't reverse'. He let out a big scream. "I said: 'You went around the corner a bit fast, like'. He said: 'I know, I'm an idiot'. He said he was on his way to training, for Arsenal. "He got out and said: 'Do you think it's a write off?'. I said: 'I'm no expert, but I think so - you have half a tree in your front bumper. "I then asked him if he was okay and he said he was fine. I said: 'Do you want to call the police?'. He said: 'I have already messaged my brother'." London-born Willock's two elder brothers are both footballers: Chris, 22, plays for Championship side QPR and Matty, 24 for Gillingham in League One. His luxury Mercedes-Benz, sometimes called a 'G-Wagon', can retail for more than £140,000. The witness continued: "We got chatting and he said his name was Joe. I asked him three or four times if he was okay and if needed me to stay. "He said he was fine, so I left. I was there for 10 or 15 minutes but my car was blocking the entrance to the M25 so I had to go. "I imagine somebody would have had to recover the car. There's no way he could have driven off." The witness said he decided to look up 'Joe and Arsenal' after the crash - and recognised Willock's picture. He added: "I asked my wife to Google him, and then I had look - it was definitely his face." Arsenal train at London Colney, just three miles from where the crash took place.
