Talk about a bumpy way for Katie Holmes to start off her newly single life.
Holmes, 33, and daughter Suri, 6, were traveling home from the Chelsea Piers recreational center Monday night when a garbage truck hit the Mercedes they were being driven in, police confirm. The only other person in the car was their driver, and no one was injured -- but sources close to the situation say Katie, 33, and Suri, 6, were shaken.
"Suri was crying in the car," a source tells People.
Once Holmes and her daughter arrived home to their new Manhattan apartment, which is close to the recreation center, a police report was filed.
This is the second time in just four days that Holmes and Suri have been involved in a car accident -- although at least this time it does not seem to be a direct result of increased media attention in the wake of Katie's split from Tom Cruise. Last Friday, a paparazzi car rammed into the mother and daughter's car as they were returning home from a trip to FAO Schwartz.
Hopefully, Suri and Katie will be able to get out of the spotlight a bit once Suri heads off to private Catholic school in the fall. Until then, maybe they should just stick to the subway or private jets to get around?
