David Beckham in Car Accident on LA Freeway

5/7/2011 1:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David Beckham was involved in a car accident on one of the busiest freeways in all of Los Angeles ... and the driver of the other car had to be taken to a local hospital ... TMZ has learned.

David Beckham Car Accident
According to law enforcement sources, Beckham was driving a black Cadillac on the 405 Freeway near Torrance, CA yesterday morning ... when he rear-ended a gold Mitsubishi that was broken down in the carpool lane.

We're told the driver of the Mistubishi, who was inside the car and wearing his seatbelt at the time, had to be taken to the hospital -- but Beckham did not require medical attention.

Law enforcement sources tell us Beckham was not arrested or cited on the scene.

A call to Beckham's rep was not returned.

UPDATE: Sources close to Beckham tell us his son Brooklyn was in the car at the time of the accident, but that he and David were both not injured.

Did Tom Cruise stop to help? Tom, the crazy Scientologist, said in a video that he was the only one that could really help someone in a car accident. HELP ME TOM, I NEED SCIENTOLOGY BRAINWASHING TO DRIVE BETTER.

Maybe if he had his head out of his arse he would've been paying attention to traffic. Go back to England, putz.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Probably on his cell phone talking about absolutely nothing.

In California, you rear-end someone it is your fault. Also, California Basic Speed law states that you must not drive faster than conditions allow... therefore the blind corner defense doesn't cut it either.

David should sue the other person for obstructing the lane and causing him and his son serious injury or even death. No mention of the other vehicle having more than one occupant. Why were they there then? There was no reason for any citation. Any freeway in CA is bad, but some much more than others. Glad to hear David and his son were ok.

Beckham should have definitely gotten ticketed. Rear ending a car is a no no. Was he favored by the police? If so, the police need to be investigated.

1.READ the UPDATE folks. His Son was apparently in the car with him, That makes it legal to be in the carpool lane.
2.If the Mitsubishi only had one person in it, then the Mitsubishi is at fault for illegally being in the carpool lane.. I'm sure he'll be sued by the sue happy folks here, but he may not be totaly at fault here, stop jumping to conclusions at every little thing you read. It just fuels a false fire, and in the end... Who cares if a celebrity gets into a car wreck, they're all regular folks like you and I, just they have more zero's in their accounts. They are Human just the same. Stay safe out there folks!

Beckham needs to be charged. He hit a stopped car!
And where I come from it's known as "Failure to Stop w/in assured clear distance". Beckham screwed up.
