Rashford and his teammates had returned from Turf Moor aboard a team coach.
Footage from the aftermath showed Rashford’s badly-dented motor on the side of the road.
A pole on a traffic island was toppled just metres away.
Rashford was left shaken-up but has no serious injuries, a source told The Sun.
Cops rushed to Carrington Spur but no arrests were made, and no ambulances were called.
The star forward’s captain Bruno Fernandes came across the scene and urgently stopped to offer help.
Pictures from the area today show traffic cones and barriers around a traffic island littered with debris.
Rashford and his Man Utd teammates had just beaten Burnley 1-0 thanks to a brilliant Fernandes goal.
Before the game, Rashford said: “One good result, one good performance, can be a game-changer at this club.
“It’s a difficult position and I’m not as happy as I’d like to be, but there’s only one way to get back this happiness is to seek results.
“We know the effect that a victory can have on the team and then it’s up to the players to show consistency.
“That’s what we lacked. Last year, we were very consistent at home, but very irregular away.”
Rashford owns three Rolls-Royces – the £700k Black Badge Wraith involved in the crash, a £390k Black Badge Cullinan and just last month he bought a £560k Cullinan Blue Shadow.
It comes after Rashford was one of two Man U players to turn down the captaincy under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, a source said.
In a no-holds-barred interview this week Solskjaer said he was “disappointed” when two players rejected the armband.
However he refused to name names.
Now a source has revealed: “Paul Pogba was offered it but said he wanted to leave the club so turned it down.
“Rashford was also asked to take the captaincy but he said he didn’t think he was ready for it.”
