Tom Cruise Reunites with Suri After Car Accident

Tom Cruise reunited with his daughter, Suri, for the first time since his divorce was announced. Just hours before, Katie Holmes and Suri were in a car that was hit by a garbage truck. INSIDE EDITION has the latest.

Tom Cruise took his daughter Suri into his arms in their first meeting since his divorce from Katie Holmes.

Tom was photographed carrying Suri into a New York hotel for the big reunion. Suri clutched her favorite stuffed animal and wore bright orange flip flops.

The reunion happened at the trendy Greenwich Hotel in Lower Manhattan, just a few blocks away from Katie Holmes' new apartment. Tom's sister, Cass was seen carrying armfuls of Suri's toys into the hotel moments before Tom and Suri arrived.

The hotel is one of the most lavish in New York.

The 50-year-old star has not seen his daughter for over a month. The dad-and-daughter moment came just a few hours after Katie Holmes and Suri were involved in a dramatic car accident caught-on-tape. It happened on Manhattan's 6th Avenue. Katie and Suri were in a chauffeured black Mercedes, and the paparazzi were right behind.

As they passed a big garbage truck on the left, they were hit. Both vehicles kept going. A big dent could be seen in Katie's $100,000 Mercedes. Katie could be seen peeking out of the window.

Suri, who had just been to gymnastics class, was distraught.

Carlos Greer of People magazine told INSIDE EDITION, "Suri was shaken up. She was crying. Katie filed a police report."

But that wasn't the end of the drama. Minutes later, Katie's car pulled over and her bodyguard confronted the sanitation truck driver.

After a harrowing night, Suri looked happy to be back in the loving embrace of her dad.
