British actor Khali Best narrowly escaped serious injury when his car collided with a van in London.

The 26 year old, known for his role in U.K. soap opera EastEnders, was involved in a traffic accident in Enfield, north London on Thursday morning (15May14).

He was pictured standing by his white Audi, which was sporting a crumpled bonnet.

An onlooker tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "I was walking up the road when he came around the corner in his car. A van in front was driving slowly and he drove past it and the collision happened."

Best is not believed to have been seriously hurt in the accident.
