Beckham ‘lucky to be alive’ after car crash

60th London Evening Standard Theatre Awards - London
David Beckham is “lucky to be alive” after being involved in a car crash.
The retired soccer star was collecting his eldest son Brooklyn, 15, from Arsenal’s training ground in London on Saturday when a woman crashed her Mitsubishi into his Audi, and the pair of them are
said to have had a lucky escape.
A witness revealed: “Beckham and Brooklyn are lucky to be alive. Beckham took the hit on the driver’s side – it could have been a completely different story.”
The 39-year-old hunk – who also has sons Romeo, 12, and Cruz, nine, and three-year-old daughter Harper with fashion designer wife Victoria Beckham, 40 – was “massively apologetic” following the collision and is said to have given the female driver his jumper as she and her daughter waited for help.
David – who is reported to have hurt his shoulder in the accident – rushed to comfort the pair, who were later taken to hospital, after checking that Brooklyn was okay.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “Beckham was turning right and mustn’t have seen the other car, or realised how fast it was travelling.
“She smacked into the side of him. It’s a miracle no one was seriously hurt. Beckham was massively apologetic.”
However, the former England captain recovered in time to escort wife Victoria to the Evening Standard Theatre Awards last night.
