Beckham in Los Angeles car crash

David Beckham has been involved in a car accident on one of the busiest roads in Los Angeles.

The LA Galaxy footballer was not injured in the crash on the southbound 405 Freeway, said a California Highway Patrol spokeswoman.

The driver of the other car was taken to hospital but was not seriously injured, she said.

Beckham's black Cadillac crashed into the back of a gold Mitsubishi which had broken down in the car-sharing lane, the spokeswoman added.

"Yesterday at approximately 9.13am he (Beckham) was involved with a collision on the southbound 405 Freeway just south of Artesia Boulevard," she said on Saturday.

"This collision occurred when his 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. David Beckham was not cited or arrested."

Sources close to Beckham said that his son Brooklyn was in the car at the time.

His car was one of many that swerved to avoid the broken down car.

The Mitsubishi reportedly only lost its bumper in the crash.
