The California Highway Patrol said Saturday the soccer great was not hurt in Friday morning’s crash, but the other car’s driver was admitted into hospital after complaining of neck pain.
The patrol says Beckham’s Cadillac struck a Mitsubishi stalled in the carpool lane of the 405 Freeway in Torrance.
The other driver, a 40-year-old Los Angeles man, was taken to hospital as a precautionary measure. His name was not released.
Beckham was not cited.
Beckham, 35, joined Major League Soccer club Los Angeles Galaxy in 2007. Before that, he played in Europe for Manchester United and Real Madrid and was captain of England’s national team from 2000 to 2006.
