Seven-time Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher has been in a French hospital since a December 29 accident left him in a coma. Now, the German driver is being investigated for another accident, although he was behind the wheel for this one.

A few weeks before his devastating accident, Schumacher was driving a rented Audi A4 in Spain when he allegedly hit a motorcyclist at a roundabout after failing to give the right of way. The cyclist broke his wrist in the incident, and damaged his bike, clothing, watch and helmet, according to The Irish Independent.

The cyclist is pressing charges, as it's the only way to receive compensation for his medical expenses, as well as damaged property. At this point, it seems likely that insurance companies for the two sides will be able to work the matter out without going to court.
