Angelina Jolie unharmed after 'pretty bad' car crash

2014-12-01 12:34

Los Angeles - Angelina Jolie has been involved in a "pretty bad" car crash.

The 39-year-old actress was being chauffeured in a black SUV on Sunday evening when the driver lost control and the motor slid on a wet road and smashed into a kerb causing two of the tyres to burst.

An eyewitness told website X17 Online: "The car slammed into the kerb at a significant speed. Angelina must have wondered if they hit another car."

"It was pretty bad - the tyre exploded and it's amazing nothing worse happened to the car. I wouldn't be surprised if she has whiplash."

The incident occurred as Angelina was being driven in Los Angeles following a screening of her movie Unbroken at the Writers' Guild Theater in Beverly Hills. She is thought to have escaped serious injury as she was later seen being picked up by a driver from the same car service.

Angelina - who has children Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, eight, and six-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with husband Brad Pitt - is not the only star to have been involved in a car crash over the weekend as David Beckham also suffered a similar fate.

The former footballer and his eldest son Brooklyn were said to have had a lucky escape after a woman smashed into their motor after David picked the 15 year old up from football training at Arsenal's training ground in north London.
