Stephen Curry gives update after being involved in multi-vehicle accident on California highway
Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry was involved in a three-car crash on westbound Highway 24 on Friday.
Just before 9 a.m. on Black Friday, Stephen Curry was driving his black Porsche. He was heading west on Highway 24.
The wet roads lead to a neighboring car spinning out and hitting Curry's car. Ten minutes later he was rear-ended by a second car.

According to California Highway Patrol Officer Herman Baza, Curry stopped in the center island after the first crash. While waiting for officers to arrive, another sedan lost control and rear-ended his Porsche about 10 minutes after the first accident.
No one was injured in the three-car crash and there were no fatalities. However, Curry's Porsche showed a badly damaged front bumper, right headlight, and side.
No arrests were made as authorities believe the rainy weather contributed to the accident. Curry made it to his team practice facility for shootaround after the accident.
Curry is still recovering from a groin injury. He was not scheduled to play in the Warriors’ game against the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday.
He did not play Friday and missed Saturday's game against the Sacramento Kings. Curry is focusing on individual training during his recovery during the past week.
His team hopes for a full recovery quickly. They plan to have an update on his status as soon as possible.
"He was a little shaken up like anybody would be getting into a car accident, but thankfully nobody was hurt and Steph's doing fine," said Golden State coach Steve Kerr.
Kerr later joked that Curry has "another car he can drive." He went on to reassure fans that Curry was uninjured and would be okay.
Curry took to Twitter to further reassure his fans. He tweeted, "Don't need any reminders but All the Time God is Great and God is Great all the time! Appreciate all the texts."
Fans replied expressing their relief that he had survived unscathed. Many shared the same outlook saying they were "glad to hear everyone is okay. Objects can always be replaced but people can't."

@Strickalator: " I have been in a head on accident and survived. The car that hit my front end launched into the sky and rolled over 2 times! I thought they were dead, they had cuts and scrapes and I was crossing an intersection. It was scary as hell.
Glad you survived like me.#StephenCurry"
Fans are now eagerly awaiting his recovery from the groin injury and his return to the court. With one fan tweeting, "I hope you're healing well and will be back on the court soon being the executioner on the court again!"
