Fallen footy legend Ben Cousins has reportedly been hospitalised after a minor crash with a truck in Western Australia.
A man received minor injuries in a crash at High Wycombe about 1:20am Wednesday morning, but police would not confirm that it was Cousins that was involved.
He is now allegedly under police guard in Royal Perth Hospital.
There are very few confirmed details about the crash; reports say a suppression order has been placed on all crash details by the WA Police.

A warrant was out for Cousins’ arrest after he failed to appear in court in Perth yesterday, for drug and AVO (Apprehended Violence Order) violation charges.
He was being charged with possession of methamphetamine, and two counts of breaching a violence restraining order that was reportedly taken out by the mother of his two children, Maylea Tinecheff, in October.
However, he didn’t show up to court. His lawyer, Michael Tudori, said that Cousins had contacted him to say that he was ill, but failed to provide a medical certicate.
Magistrate Geoff Lawrence said that there was nothing to prove that the former footballer was actually sick, and so issued the warrant for his arrest at the end of the court day.
