Before we all start panicking and booking the next flight into LAX to hold a candlit vigil, the LA Galaxy star is reported to be unharmed.
The Guardian notes:
R20;David Beckham has been involved in a car accident on one of the busiest roads in Los Angeles.
“The LA Galaxy star was not injured in the crash on the southbound 405 Freeway, a California Highway Patrol spokeswoman said. The driver of the other car was taken to hospital but was not seriously injured.
“Beckham’s black Cadillac crashed into the back of a gold Mitsubishi which had broken down in the carpool lane.
“Yesterday at approximately 9.13am he [Beckham] was involved with a collision on the southbound 405 Freeway just south of Artesia Boulevard,” said the spokeswoman.
“This collision occurred when his black Cadillac collided with the rear of a disabled gold Mitsubishi which was stalled in the carpool lane due to mechanical problems. The driver of the vehicle had a complaint of pain and was taken to hospital. David Beckham was not cited or arrested.”
We can all breathe a huge sigh of relief- after all who’s going to head England’s next World cup bid if Beckham’s not around?
