NBA star Steph Curry was involved in an accident involving two cars on Friday morning.

The crashes happened one after the other just before 9 a.m. in Oakland.

A California Highway Patrol (CHP) spokesman said Curry was hit twice; first a car spun out and hit him, then a second car rear-ended him. Curry's Porsche was damaged. But everyone, including Curry, was uninjured.

The CHP said weather likely played a role. In a post on Facebook, the agency confirmed that Curry's Porsche had been in the accidents at 8.55 a.m., but that everyone had escaped unharmed because they were wearing seatbelts.

"Mr. Curry was driving a black Porsche sedan in the number one lane when a driver in a silver Lexus sedan lost control of their vehicle and made an unsafe lane change from the number four lane to the number one lane, and collided with Mr. Curry's vehicle," the post read. "After the collision, Mr. Curry stopped his vehicle in the center median to wait for assistance. Approximately ten minutes later, at 855 hours, while Mr. Curry was stopped in the center median, the driver of a black Honda civic traveling in the number one lane, approaching Mr. Curry's location, lost control of their vehicle and veered into the center median and collided with the concrete wall and then Mr. Curry's vehicle."

No one involved appeared to be impaired by drugs or alcohol, and no arrests were made, the CHP said, adding, "Thankfully, everyone walked away uninjured due to everyone wearing their seatbelts."


Curry is still recovering from a groin injury. He was not scheduled to play in the game against the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday.
