President Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca was involved in a car crash on Monday when her official car was wedged against the central barrier of a main road in Paola. 

The incident happened on Vjal Sir Paul Boffa and is believed to have been caused by a foreign-registered trailer truck.

President Coleiro Preca was on her way to San Anton Palace to meet Irish employment minister Regina Doherty at the time. 

Malta's head of state was unhurt in the incident and was whisked away in another vehicle while police worked to clear the accident site.
