Singer Beyonce was spotted out shopping at a store in central London, England Tuesday (Jul 6) and she was kind enough to stop for a few seconds and take pictures with a very lucky fan who caught the singer as she left the store.

Meanwhile, Beyonce narrowly escaped serious injury the same day in London after her car door was ripped off by a taxi! Beyonce and her husband rapper Jay-Z were on their way to Japanese restaurant Zuma but she decided to stop at a store. After stepping out of the car and onto the street, a taxi collided with the car’s door, ripping it off its hinges and missing the singer by centimeters. A source told The Sun newspaper:

“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.”

Bey and Jay were sent another car to take them to the restaurant and they were seen looking happier and relaxed after dinner. Good thing those couple of seconds she waited to step out the car made a difference!
