David Beckham and son in London car crash

THERE has been a lucky escape for David Beckham and his teenage son in London after they were involved in a car crash.

The Telegraph reports the 39-year-old retired English footballer was picking up his 15-year-old son Brooklyn from a football game in London Colney, Hertfordshire when the accident happened on Saturday.

It’s understood Beckham’s grey Audi RS6 collided with a silver Mitsubishi Colt outside the Arsenal Football Club training ground.


The Beckham duo were left shaken but spared serious injury by the deployment of the car’s airbags.

The BBC reported the female driver of the Mitsubishi was transported to hospital while Beckham was “slightly injured”.

The cause of the crash remains unclear.
