Giancarlo Fisichella has been involved in a minor traffic crash in Italy.

Fisichella, who is now a Ferrari test driver, rear-ended a small car driven by a 52-year-old woman in Campagnano, north of Rome, according to Italian media reports. The driver of the car he hit was taken to hospital and discharged shortly afterwards.

Fisichella reportedly told the traffic police that he came across a long queue of traffic caused by road works and was not able to stop his Ferrari in time.

In 2005, when Fisichella was caught doing 148kph in a 60kph in Rome, he explained to police that he was rushing to his child who had a high fever.
