Monica and her mum were involved in a car accident yesterday in Florida.

Both were taken to hospital via ambulance and later discharged.

They were hit by another driver, who was charged <br />with Driving Under The Influence.

Thankfully, both Monica and her Mum are fine.

I have a friend who works for the Florida troopers - this is the only info she could get for me.

<br />Seles treated for minor injuries in car accident

December 7, 2001

<br />VENICE, Fla. (AP) -- Monica Seles and her mother were treated for minor injuries after a car accident in which the other driver was charged with driving under the influence, police said.

The 28-year-old tennis star and her 62-year-old mother, Ester, were taken by ambulance to Doctors Hospital and later released.

Monica Seles was driving her sports utility vehicle Wednesday night when a pickup truck driven by Cynthia Bauman turned directly in front of Seles' path, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report.

Bauman, 42, was taken to the Sarasota County Jail and charged with DUI causing personal injury and property damage, and making an improper left turn, according to FHP reports. She was not injured.

Howard Tidwell, 41, of Sarasota, a passenger in Bauman's truck, also was treated for minor injuries.

A message left with the hospital Friday morning was not immediately returned.

Troopers said Seles, of Sarasota, and her mother were wearing seat belts

Happy to hear that Monica and her mom are fine<sigh> I don't know about other cities, but here in Fort Myers , people are allowed to call the cops if they feel they are intoxicated and need a ride home. Drunk driving is unforgivable in my book arrghh <img src="graemlins/firey.gif" border="0" alt="[Fiery]" /> <img src="graemlins/firey.gif" border="0" alt="[Fiery]" /> <img src="mad.gif" border="0"> <img src="graemlins/firey.gif" border="0" alt="[Fiery]" /> <img src="mad.gif" border="0">

On a french website they wrote that Monica Seles and her mother Mélanie Molitor had a car accident so I was a little confused <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> .
