The two time world champion and 2008 Olympic champion in 1500m, Asbel Kiprop, of Kenya was involved in a car accident in Kenya after which he and his teammate James Kangogo were hospitalized.
Kiprop was returning to his Eldoret home from Kabarnet, situated in Kenya's Rift valley region, when the car he was driving hit a rock and veered off the road, his friend Wilson Kipsang told AFP.
"He's okay. He was treated at the hospital in Eldoret for some bruises and allowed to go home," said world marathon record holder Kipsang, who accompanied Kiprop and his fellow passenger, James Kangogo to hospital.
"The car's front bumper was slightly damaged," added Kipsang.
