Italy and AC Milan fullback Mattia De Sciglio has escaped unharmed from a car crash.

De Sciglio's Audi was involved in an accident with two other cars on a motorway near Milan on Wednesday morning.

Among those first to attend to De Sciglio were his Milan teammates Stephan El Shaarawy and Riccardo Montolivo.

The 20-year-old defender was unharmed but was taken to hospital in nearby Busto Arsizio as a precaution.

De Sciglio is already facing around a month on the sidelines after undergoing knee surgery earlier this month. He is one of a number of Milan players currently out injured.

De Sciglio was a starter for Italy at this year's Confederations Cup.
