Beyonce escapes alive after a car accident

Beyonce Knowles narrowly escaped serious injury when the car she was in was involved in a crash with a London cab. This happened yesterday morning when her car door was ripped off by the aforementioned taxi as she stepped onto a busy London street.

According to media reports, Beyonce, 28, and rapper husband Jay-Z, 40, were on their way to the Japanese restaurant Zuma in the swanky Knightsbridge neighborhood for a romantic dinner when the singer decided to a stop. The "Single Ladies" singer was about to step out of her chauffeur-driven car, a Mercedes Benz S-Klasse, and pop into the upscale Harrods department store for a quick shop Tuesday. While opening the door of her Mercedes, a taxi slammed into the door and ripped it off its hinges.

Shoppers looked on in horror as the taxi collided with the car's door, ripping it off its hinges and missing Beyonce by just a matter of centimeters.

The 28 year-old diva looked very shocked after the incident.

A source said: "It was terrifying to watch. It all happened so quickly, the taxi came out of nowhere. She seemed very shaken and was lucky to be alive. A couple of seconds difference and God knows what could have happened."

Forced to dump the Mercedes, Beyonce and Jay-Z were sent a replacement car to head to dinner. Luckily, Beyonce and her husband recovered quickly and the couple seemed very relaxed after leaving the restaurant.
