Actress Katie Holmes and daughter Suri Cruise were involved in a minor car accident with a sanitation truck in New York City on Monday night but were not hurt, a police source said.

Holmes, who earlier this month reached a divorce settlement with actor Tom Cruise, was in a Mercedes with their daughter when a New York City Sanitation truck hit the car, the source said.

A New York Police Department spokesman said an accident involving a Mercedes and a truck occurred around 9:30 p.m. EDT on Monday but said he could not name the passengers. A separate source speaking on condition of anonymity confirmed Holmes and her daughter were in the car.

There were no injuries and no criminal charges were expected, police said.

Representatives for Holmes could not immediately be reached.

Holmes' high-profile divorce case with Cruise centered around the raising of 6-year-old Suri.
