London: Former England football captain David Beckham and his 15-year-old son Brooklyn were left shaken after they were involved in a car crash in London.
The accident occurred after Beckham was picking up his eldest son from a football match at Arsenal grounds in Hertfordshire, north of London on Saturday.

The 39-year-old football star and his son were unhurt after the incident and two passengers in another vehicle were also reportedly uninjured.
Brooklyn had been playing for Arsenal’s under-16s against Brighton and Hove Albion at London Colney in Hertfordshire. He joined the London squad on a short-term contract earlier this month. While both Beckhams were able to walk away from the accident unscathed after their air bags deployed successfully, their Audi RS6 was rendered unusable and damaged on the driver’s side, according to reports.

Scotland Yard were called to the scene at London Colney in Hertfordshire Saturday evening, the BBC reported. London Colney is the site of Arsenal’s training ground. Beckham has been involved in road accident previously, when he collided with another car in Beverley Hills last October. Brooklyn’s brothers, 12-year-old Romeo and nine-year-old Cruz, have also been playing for Arsenal’s younger teams.
