I found this article today. I hope that Monica and her mother are okay.

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. A hospital spokeswoman on Friday would not comment on the treatment, citing patient confidentiality.

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.

According to a highway patrol report, Bauman turned in front of Seles, causing both vehicles to spin. The report did not say how fast the motorists were going. Damage was listed at $20,000 for each vehicle.

Troopers said Seles, of Sarasota, and her mother were wearing seat belts. Seles' agent did not immediately return a phone call by The Associated Press. <br /> <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" />

Can you imagine that? Thankfully, Monica and her mother are okay. But this terrible, terrible year, nearly got worse. Thank God it didn't.
