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.

GRYFFINDOR!    

That's so dangerous, this actually happened to me a couple of weeks ago. I was also driving on the 405 in Torrance and someone was stuck in the carpool lane and I barely swerved in time. Almost crapped my pants.

This is definitely not his fault, it's actually the fault of whoever is stuck in the lane. At least he was smart enough to keep his seat belt on. When you're driving that fast on the freeway, you can't tell if the car in front of you is stopped, especially if they don't have lights on and the car in front of you swerves last minute. Speaking from experience.

If cops would have been able to arrest him BEFORE the accident, the whole thing could have been avoided and nobody would have been injured.

We know that if someone is a celebrity that they are going to eventually commit a heinous crime, so we need to be able to arrest celebrities before they injure real people.

Driving too close to the car in front usually has this kind of result.

Get ready to cough up some serious $$$$$$$$$$, David

The L.A. freeways are too dangerous, no one
should be driving them. How about an
alternate transportation plan where
only compitent drivers are allowed
and everyone else gets a sopher.

That's the scariest thing about sitting in the carpool. I wonder if he was drunk or something because they seem to be letting this slide under the rug quite easily.
