Football star David Beckham has escaped unhurt from an accident involving his car and a broken down vehicle on a busy Los Angeles highway.
Although Beckham escaped injury, his car insurance premiums might take a bit of a hammering after the LA Galaxy star's black Cadillac crashed into the back of a gold Mitsubishi stalled in the car sharing lane on the southbound 405 Freeway.
The Mitsubishi driver did not suffer any major injuries, but was taken to hospital complaining of pain.
Beckham's son Brooklyn was reportedly in the car with him when the crash happened on Friday morning.
The spokeswoman said: "This collision occurred when (Beckham's) black Cadillac collided with the rear of a disabled gold Mitsubishi which was stalled in the car pool lane due to mechanical problems."
The driver of the vehicle had a complaint of pain and was taken to hospital, she said, adding, "David Beckham was not cited or arrested."
According to reports, the Mitsubishi was left with a damaged bumper following the accident.
