Robert Kubica has been cleared of any fault in his February rally accident Some more good news for Robert Kubica, with reports that Italian accident investigators have finally cleared the Polish driver and his rally team of any wrongdoing in the wake of his near-fatal rally accident in February.

The 26-year-old spent a 76-day stint in hospital recovering from multiple fractures and a partial amputation to his right hand after Armco barriers tore through the Pole’s Skoda Fabia S2000 rally car during a stage of the Ronde Andora rally.

With one of the more curious features of Italian law being a presumption that someone, or something, is always at fault in the event of any car accident, investigators have finally cleared both Kubica and his team of any fault in the accident, according to reports in the SID news agency and L’Equipe sports newspaper.
