London: American singer Beyonce Knowles had a lucky escape when she opened her car door and it was ripped off its hinges by a London taxi.
Beyonce with hubby Jay-Z was about to step out of the car and enter Harrods for some quick shopping.
The black cab missed the 28-year-old singer by inches before hitting her Mercedes.
“It was terrifying to watch. It all happened so quickly, the taxi came out of nowhere,” The Sun quoted a source as saying.
“She seemed very shaken and was lucky to be alive. A couple of seconds difference and God knows what could have happened,” the source added.
Beyonce was on a romantic evening with rapper Jay-Z.
The couple was heading to a swanky Japanese restaurant Zuma in Knightsbridge for dinner when she decided to go to Harrods.
