His “lucky escape” last week from a multi-car collision on a busy Los Angeles freeway fortunately hasn”t scared off David Beckham from getting behind the wheel.

The footballer was pictured taking two of his sons, Romeo, eight, and Cruz, six, out for frozen yoghurt in Studio City, California yesterday.

A few hours later he chauffeured his wife Victoria to dinner at Matsuhisa restaurant in Beverly Hills.

The family dog Coco joined Beckham and the boys for the trip to Pinkberry, where they often stop off for a frozen treat.

Eldest son Brooklyn, who was with Beckham when the accident occurred on Friday, did not join the outing.

Beckham, 36, was dressed casually in a black T-shirt and his favourite black beanie, which he was still sporting when he dined with his pregnant wife that night.

Mrs Beckham sat in the back seat while her husband drove to Matsuhisa – part of the Nobu franchise.

LA Galaxy star Beckham was at the wheel of his black Cadillac Escalade when it became the third car in the pile-up. Both he and Brooklyn were wearing seat belts.

Thecollision happened after a gold Mitsubishi stalled in the fast lane dueto mechanical problems, a California Highway Patrol spokeswoman said.

She said: “Yesterdayat approximately 9.13am Beckham was involved with a collision on the southbound 405 Freeway just south of Artesia Boulevard.”

She added: “The biggest commotion was when people realised it was David Beckham.”

A second source added: ‘David and Brooklyn were shaken up and shocked by the experience but medically they were both fine.

“It was a lucky escape and both were wearing seatbelts, otherwise they would have been more seriously hurt.

‘The car that stalled was in the car pool lane on the highway. It’s a fast lane for cars with two or more passengers.

‘When it stalled, David and the other drivers swerved to avoid it but they couldn’t get out of the way in time.

‘David’s car was taken away from the scene by a tow truck. It had lost a front bumper in the collision.’
