The midfielder, 29, was being driven to training in a Mercedes when the £70,000 people carrier flipped over on the A12.

Miraculously Lanzini walked away from the wreckage unscathed and was even able to carry on training.

Footage now shows the shocking aftermath of yesterday's crash as emergency crews raced to the scene.

The mangled car can be seen on its side after it left the road and smashed into a tree.

Fire trucks and ambulances can also be seen blocking the road in Romford, East London, near the Hammers' training ground.

Posting alongside a picture of him giving a thumbs up, the forward said: "Hello people, I wanted to thank everyone for the messages of support and affection on this day, they did me a lot of good since it was a very big scare, but thank God, as far as the accident was, everything went well. 

"Thank you very much. I want to thank you for all the messages you sent me of love and support."

Witnesses said he had a mild limp at the scene – but it is understood he was looked over by top medics at West Ham's training ground and ruled fit.

The chauffeur is understood to have been cut free from the vehicle but was also unhurt.

Dad-of-one Lanzini is expected to be available for West Ham's clash against Everton on Sunday.

A source said: "It's a miracle he's alive, from what I've heard.

"This was an incredibly near miss and could have killed Lanzini and the driver.

"It's common for West Ham players to use a chauffeur service – especially for those who live in town.

"They were on a dual carriageway so it could have caused complete carnage.

"Just goes to show, it doesn't matter how much cash you have – we're all just as vulnerable to a smash like this.

"Thank goodness he was okay."

West Ham confirmed the crash took place near their Rush Green complex.
