Beckhams Escape Unscathed After Crash

Victoria Beckham and her husband 

David escaped unscathed following a terrifying car crash in France on Friday, August 22.

The couple was visiting their home in the village of Bargemon, close to the French Riviera, last week before the soccer star was due to fly to Beijing, China to take part in the Olympics closing ceremony on Sunday, August 24.

But on the way to the Nice airport to catch his plane to China, the pair were involved in a horrific crash, which left their black BMW with a smashed windscreen and extensive damage along the passenger side. 

David Beckham reportedly smashed the car laterally into a wall, leaving his wife severely shaken.

Beckham was photographed embracing a tearful Victoria in the car and comforting her, before he raced to the departure lounge with her father Tony Adams.

Beckham was forced to run to catch his flight, leaving his distraught partner with the wrecked car.

No other vehicles are believed to have been involved in the accident.
