David Beckham and son Brooklyn escape car crash unharmed
David Beckham and his son Brooklyn were left rattled but unscathed in a car accident on Saturday (Nov 29).
The incident involving the former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder's Audi and one other vehicle occurred at Arsenal's London Colney training ground in Hertfordshire while Beckham was picking up his 15-year-old son, who plays for the Gunners' under-16s, after a training match with Brighton's under-16s.
Both Beckhams walked away from the scene without serious injury.
A source who has close ties to Beckham told The Daily Telegraph: "They were shaken. It was quite a heavy prang at quite a speed but everybody walked away uninjured.
"Everybody’s fine. Thankfully the car’s airbags deployed."
Sky News reported that the other vehicle was carrying two passengers, who were also uninjured in the crash.
Two Brighton youngsters who had seen the crash took to Twitter to air their thoughts.
Archie Davies said on the social media site: "Just seen David Beckham looks like he got in a car crash and hurt his shoulder. Star struck by seeing David Beckham tbh."
Teammate Thomas Cadman tweeted: "Weird to play against Brooklyn Beckham earlier. Even weirder to be currently stuck behind David Beckham as he has crashed his car."
Brooklyn followed in his famous father's footsteps earlier this month when he signed a short-term academy contract with Arsenal.
Beckham's other sons, 12-year-old Romeo and nine-year-old Cruz, have also been playing for the Gunners' youth sides.
