Tom Cruise reunites with daughter Suri after car crash in Manhattan

TOM Cruise reunited with his daughter Suri in New York today for the first time since his split from wife Katie Holmes.

Shooting on the actor's latest movie Oblivion wrapped in California yesterday and the 50-year-old flew to New York overnight to see his youngest child, The Daily Mail reports.

The six-year-old cuddled her father with one arm and clutched a soft toy in the other as he carried her into the Greenwich Hotel.

His sister Cass Mapother was later seen arriving at the establishment with toys in tow.

Tom had no contact with Katie when he made a five minute visit to her apartment to collect their child earlier this morning, according to TMZ.

Tom and Suri were last spotted in public together on June 16, when they dined at Sushi Samba in Reykjavik, Iceland, along with Katie.

It was no doubt an emotional reunion for father and daughter, who have been keeping in touch via phone and video chat in recent weeks.

It would have been even more poignant given last night's scare which saw Katie and Suri involved in a car accident, capping off a tumultuous time for the little girl.

The former Dawson's Creek actress and her six-year-old child were riding in the back of a black Mercedes sedan when it was struck by a garbage truck in New York yesterday evening.

No one was reported hurt in the incident, which onlookers say was minor.

One source said: “It was nothing major other than the fact that it was Katie Holmes."

Police arrived on the scene and noted the actress' chauffeur-driven vehicle had sustained a large dent and several scratches to the rear driver side panel after the Volvo truck - from Classic Sanitation Recycling New York Corp - had apparently backed into the luxury vehicle.

Katie - who filed for divorce from her daughter's father, actor Tom Cruise, last month - and Suri were not seen at the scene of the crash.

Following her split from Tom, Katie has secured primary custody of their little girl in an undisclosed divorce agreement.

It was recently revealed she has enrolled Suri into New York's Convent of the Sacred Heart School - where former pupils include Lady Gaga and Paris Hilton - because the actress wants her daughter to have a Catholic education, rather than being taught at a Scientology school as the Mission: Impossible star desired.
