Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise have had a narrow escape. Last night (July 16, 2012) Katie and her daughter Suri were leaving Chelsea Piers, New York, when their smart black Mercedes was swiped by a careless garbage truck driver. Luckily, neither Katie, Suri, nor their driver were injured in the accident. The Mercedes, on the other hand, was not so lucky and New York Daily News has published a photo of the expensive motor looking a little worse for wear.
According to the report, Suri had been attending a gymnastics class at Chelsea Piers and the incident occurred at around 9:30pm, between Seventh and Eighth Avenue. A police source told the paper "It was nothing major other than the fact that it was Katie Holmes." Nonetheless, it was a lucky escape for Katie and Suri, who recently switched their security team, in a further step to extricate herself from the ties of her ex-husband. Cruise reportedly finished filming his movie Oblivion and was photographed flying out of Mammoth Lakes, California, fuelling rumors that he may be preparing to visit Suri himself.
In an incredibly speedy divorce, Katie, 33, won primary physical custody of Suri but the divorce settlement gives Tom generous visitation rights. Meanwhile, with Katie making sure that Suri is attending her regular classes, it seems as though she is doing a good job of keeping Suri in a regular routine.
