Napoli defender Hugo Campagnaro is recovering in hospital after surviving a fatal car crash in Argentina.

Three people died in the two-car collision early on Thursday morning, with Campagnaro having been one of the drivers.

The 30-year-old suffered only minor injuries after a seatbelt and airbag came to his rescue, according to local media reports.

"It was a major crash," Campagnaro's uncle Sergio Castillo told CalcioNapoli24.it.

"Hugo is recovering in a hospital in Rio Cuarto where he is undergoing tests. He's conscious but in shock.

Minor injuries

"He has a few cuts and is suffering from concussion. It was the seatbelt and airbag that saved Hugo."

Campagnaro had returned to his homeland for the close-season.

One of the two passengers in his Toyota died in the crash along with both the driver and passenger of the other car on a state road in Cordoba province.
