Ex-England captain David Beckham was driving his black Cadillac Escalade car with his 12-year-old son Brooklyn that got into a multiple-car pile-up (the third one in the line) on Saturday on the 405 Freeway in Los Angeles, just near Torrance (which is a “small coastal community just outside of Los Angeles”). Buckled up in seat-belts, the two remained completely unharmed following the event. Had they not have been secure in their seat-belts, it could have been a very different outcome. It was a Mitsubishi car that was to blame, which had stalled in the fast lane, experiencing mechanical issues. The stalling of the car caused others to swerve to avoid it but they were unable to “get out of the way in time.”
The Mitsubishi car driver was however taken to hospital. He was complaining of pains but according to a spokeswoman on the scene, did not incur any serious injuries either. Indeed, the entire collision was also described as not being serious. It only became a “commotion” when people realized David Beckham was in one of the cars involved in the pile-up. His car had to be towed however, since the collision resulted in the damage of a front bumper.
Even though police came to the scene, they did not focus on Beckham at all. In fact, he wasn’t even called aside for questioning.
Brave Beckham and Brooklyn
Although David Beckham and his son Brooklyn were unharmed, not surprisingly they were described as being “shaken.” However, neither of them required medical treatment. Thankfully, pregnant wife Victoria (or their two other children) were not with them in the car at the time.
