And Pettersen provided some details in a post on her blog:
On our way to the airport we were in a car accident! Paula, Ai, my mum and myself with the rest of our entourage! We were driving on the highway pretty fast and at times maybe to ruff. Meaning, no room for errors what so ever! And it was just a matter of time we must say before something actually happend! Don’t know how it all went down, but in a split second the entourage of our 5 cars was all crushed together! Paula said she felt like a ping ping ball being hit from both ends pretty hard! I was in the last car and manage somehow to just miss the rest! Out of all the cars, the car I was in was the only car suited to take us to the airport! We are just happy no one got more seriously injured from the impact! Ai and Paula and some of the guys had some pain in their necks! It was a scary split second, where u realize how quick it can go!
Here's hoping Paula's and Ai's soreness fades quickly and everyone is OK.
Update: Paula Creamer has tweeted some updates on her experience and condition:
Thanks for all your good wishes. I really do have great fans and wonderful friends. I was part of a high speed 5 car accident on way to BKK.
I was in the middle car and felt like a ping pong ball. I saw doctors today no concussion, sore shoulder and moderate whiplash.
I will probably be sore for several weeks. My air bag did not deploy. Had seat belt on thank goodness. Colin was in the back seat.
Colin has a sore neck and shoulders. We might have to get small bag this week. We were very lucky. Hope to be able to play this week.
