Marcos Alonso has appeared in court after a car crash which killed a young woman in Madrid in the early hours of Monday morning.

Alonso is reported to have been more than twice the legal drink drive limit when the car he was driving overturned and crashed into a stone wall.

It has since emerged that three passengers had to be removed from the car. One of which, a 22-year-old woman, died in hospital half-an-hour after arrival with an intracranial trauma.

Another woman is reported to have suffered a wounded abdomen and throax, while the other passenger, Real Madrid youngster Jaime Navarro, is receiving treatment for a broken collarbone.

The Bolton defender appeared in court in the Spanish capital on Tuesday and could face a charge of negligent homicide.

A police statement read: "Preliminary investigating Court No4 in Madrid yesterday released footballer Marcos Alonso Mendoza, who is suspected of having committed an alleged crime against road safety, driving while over the alcohol limit, a crime of negligent homicide and causing of reckless injury.

"In addition, the judge has imposed precautionary measures to withdraw his driving license and impose a driving ban throughout the national territory for the duration of the instruction process."

Alonso, who has been granted permission to return to England while a court date is set, joined Bolton from Real Madrid last summer and has gone on to make nine appearances for the Trotters.

Bolton Wanderers have refused to comment.
