Double trouble

UNIVERSIDAD de Chile striker Juan Manuel Olivera is recovering after he was knocked out during a match and then the ambulance taking him to hospital crashed. The Uruguayan striker's misfortune began when he was knocked unconscious after a clash with rival goalkeeper Jorge Rivera in Thursday's game away to O'Higgins in Rancagua. He was taken to a nearby clinic for a check, regaining consciousness on the way. Doctors said the results of the exams were good but ordered him to be transferred to a Santiago hospital. But during the journey his ambulance was involved in a collision with another vehicle. Media reports said nobody was hurt but Olivera had to wait around two hours for a substitute ambulance which was delayed by rush-hour traffic.
