The circumstances of the crash are unclear, but it was reported that Beams was the only person injured during the accident.

Beams won the medal in Collingwood’s 2010 premiership after what was the just the third drawn Grand Final in AFL history.
Collingwood eventually took out the victory against St Kilda by 56 points in a replay.
He stepped away from the AFL indefinitely in December to deal with mental health issues.
