ROME -- Still regaining his strength from a severe rally accident last year, former Formula One driver Robert Kubica has come away unscathed from another rally crash.

The Pole drove his Subaru off the road and into the trees during the San Martino di Castrozza Rally on Saturday, but organizers say Kubica and navigator Jakub Gerber escaped injury.

Kubica sustained massive injuries to the right side of his body in a crash at the Ronde di Andora Rally in Italy in February 2011, almost severing his forearm and fracturing a leg and shoulder.

He marked his return to racing in another rally this month.

After four F1 seasons with BMW Sauber, Kubica drove for Renault in 2010 and finished eighth in the drivers' standings.
