SYDNEY Swans $10m recruit Lance "Buddy" Franklin has been caught in a new bingle.
The club's star recruit was interviewed by police after a car crash in Sydney's eastern suburbs.
Franklin, 27, was understood to have been driving along New South Head Road, Rose Bay, near Cranbrook Road, when he lost control of his vehicle and slammed into four parked cars, about 7.05pm Wednesday night.
The car, a Jeep Grand Cherokee, is believed to belong to his girlfriend, television presenter and model Jesinta Campbell.
Photos of the crash quickly appeared on Twitter with Rose Bay resident Craig McDonald tweeting: "Buddy Franklin has just totalled three parked cars on New South Head road outside my place."
Pictures show the 4WD smashed head-on into the vehicles, causing serious damage to the hood and deflating the air-bags.
Police attended the scene and were seen taking a statement from Franklin about the crash.
A spokesman from Rose Bay police station said Franklin returned a negative blood alcohol test.
Police said no one was injured in the crash and the driver, who they described as 27-year-old man from Bondi, was believed to be travelling alone at the time.
Franklin left the scene with friends and his car was towed away.
Rose Bay resident Phoebe Edwards, owner of one of the vehicles, said: "I just came out to take the rubbish out and someone has wiped out the back of my car."
It's not the first time Franklin has experienced car trouble since relocating to Sydney.
Earlier this year teammate Dan Hannebery crashed Franklin's Mercedes.
"Franklin had lent the car to teammate Dan Hannebery. Franklin was not driving nor was he a passenger in the car," the club said at the time.
