David Beckham and his teenage son Brooklyn escaped badly shaken from a car crash on Saturday in which they were spared serious injury by the deployment of the car's airbags, The Telegraph reported.
Beckham, 39, the former England captain, was picking up his 15-year-old son when his Audi was involved in a collision outside Arsenal's training ground in Hertfordshire.
A source close to Beckham said: "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."
Brooklyn, who plays for Arsenal under-16s, had just finished a match against Brighton's under-16s.
Thomas Cadman, who plays for Brighton under-16s, said on Twitter: "Weird to play against Brooklyn Beckham earlier. Even weirder to be currently stuck behind David Beckham as he has crashed his car."
Archie Davies, a team-mate, said: "Just seen David Beckham looks like he got in a car crash and hurt his shoulder. Star struck by seeing David Beckham tbh.'
Brooklyn was signed by Arsenal on a short-term contract in November. His brother, Romeo, 12, and Cruz, nine, have also been playing for the club's underage teams.
