Andy Murray's Car Accident in Paris

Andy Murray, a competitor at the BNP Paribas Masters in Paris, was with coach Brad Gilbert on Monday in heavy traffic when another car crashed into the back of their car.

"I've never been in car crash before," Murray said. "There was a lot of traffic, the driver just broke and somebody driving at about 20 kilometres per hour bumped into the back of the car. There was a pretty loud bang. My back is a bit stiff, but it's nothing serious."

Since I am one of the people in charge of event transportation for tennis tournament in Toronto, in the back of my mind, this is one of the scenarios that I fear most during the two weeks that we provide transportation services to tournament guests. Car accidents happen. You just hope that it doesn't happen during your watch, and if it does, you hope that no one is hurt. Thankfully nothing like this has happened in Toronto over the last 11 years that I've been involved with the tennis tournament (knock on wood).

Hopefully, Andy Murray is ok, and he can continue his pursuit of a berth for the Tennis Masters Cup in Shanghai.
