London - Crystal Palace's Pape Souare was taken to hospital on Sunday following a car accident, the Premier League club announced Monday.

The 26-year-old Senegal defender sustained thigh and jaw injuries during the crash and will remain in hospital to receive treatment, the south London side said.

"The club are liaising closely with the hospital on his progress and we obviously wish him a speedy recovery," said a Palace statement.

"Our thoughts are with Pape and his family at this time."

Souare was airlifted in a helicopter from the crash site, on the M4 motorway west of London, to hospital.

A Metropolitan Police statement read: "Officers were called shortly before 12:10hrs (1110 GMT) on Sunday, 11 September to reports of two cars in collision between junctions four and three.

"London Ambulance Service attended and the driver of one of the cars -- a man aged in his 20s -- was taken to an east London hospital for treatment. His injuries are not life threatening.

"The driver of the other car involved did not require hospital treatment. There have been no arrests."

Souare, who joined Palace from French club Lille in 2015, did not play in the Eagles' 2-1 league win away to Middlesbrough on Saturday but he has featured in three league games so far this season.
