Harry Kane’s three eldest children had a “lucky escape” after being involved in a three-car crash in Germany.

The England skipper was jetting back to the UK when his two daughters and one of his sons were caught up in a horror pileup.

Louis, 3, Vivienne, 5, and Ivy, 7, were taken to hospital as a precaution following the crash on Monday afternoon on state road 2071 in Schaftlarn.

England ace Kane was not in the car, having landed back in the UK for his side’s 2-2 Champions League quarter-final first leg against Arsenal on Tuesday.

The youngsters, who striker Kane, 30, shares with wife Katie Goodland, 31, were travelling in a Mercedes Vito when a Renault driver smashed into them.

Police said the Renault was turning into a junction when it crashed into the oncoming Mercedes near Munich, where Kane plays for Bayern Munich.

A local volunteer fire chief said it was “very lucky” no one was seriously injured.

In an update, former Spurs striker Kane reassured his children were “fine”.

A spokesman for the star said: “There was a crash, but the kids are fine, and none were injured.

“No injuries at all. They went to hospital for a routine check-up.”

Hohenschäftlarn Volunteer Fire Department chief Daniel Buck said the cars “had a lot of damage”.

He told the BBC: “The good news was nobody had really strong injuries, more minor injuries, like they have pain in the neck from the head up, normally typical for a car accident.

“Thank God nobody was really injured. It was really lucky for all the people.”

Pictures show the shocking damage to the black Mercedes, with debris strewn across the road.

Kane’s wife Kate and their youngest child Henry, seven months, were not in the car.

The Mercedes was driven by a 24-year-old woman from the district and there were three passengers in the Renault, aged three, 43 and 48.

A Land Rover, driven by a 62-year-old woman, was also caught up in the shocking collision.

Those involved in the smash suffered minor injuries and were transported to hospital via ambulance and helicopters, cops said.

Munich traffic police are now in charge of further investigation.

Kane and his family moved to Germany in August last year after the striker signed a £104 million ($A199m) transfer to Bayern from Tottenham.

He moved his wife Katie and their four kids into a luxury £30 million ($A58m) mansion previously owned by ex-Bayern stars Mehmet Scholl and Lucas Hernandez – in an area dubbed the Beverly Hills of Bavaria.

Katie and Harry are childhood sweethearts who have been together since they met in their school days.

The pair got engaged in July 2017, when Kane was 23, on a holiday in the Bahamas.

Kane got down on one knee on a beach to ask the question – then revealed on Twitter that “she said yes!”
