Murray's car hit from behind in Paris shunt

When you are in a hurry to get somewhere accidents can happen. For the last month Andy Murray has been hurtling around Europe, flying to Metz, Moscow, Madrid and St Petersburg, but his travels came to an abrupt halt here on Monday night. After arriving in the French capital from Russia to play in this week's Paris Masters, the 20-year-old Scot and his coach, Brad Gilbert, were involved in a car crash on the way to their hotel.

"There was quite a lot of traffic on the way from the airport," Murray said yesterday. "The guy driving our car did nothing wrong. He just broke, then someone drove right into the back of us at about 20 kilometres an hour. Our car was fine. The other driver smashed up his.

"I'd never been in a car crash like that before. When you get hit that hard it's a pretty loud bang. You get thrown forward and back pretty quickly. My back was a little bit stiff this morning, but nothing serious."

This was in the other Murray thread right from the start...

Nevertheless maybe one more reason why Nieminen could upset him.

Stiff back sounds like a good excuse to me.

I was involved in a similar accident this past summer and my mum had neck and back issues for quite a while even if the car behind was only driving at a similar speed as here. The backlash can still cause some injuries, so it's not really a laughing matter.

Also a WTA player from Slovenia, Pisnik, suffered a neck injury, when a tournament driver got in an accident in the garage somehow, she was never the same and after injuring her neck in a similar incident shortly after she was forced to retire.
