Sounds like Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise had a close shave Monday night.

E! News has confirmed that the duo's vehicle was dinged by a garbage truck in midtown Manhattan.

Talk about dealing with loads o' rubbish!

According an NYPD spokesman, at around 9:30 p.m. a black Mercedes driven by Holmes' chauffeur got into a minor fender-bender with a private sanitation truck on West 33rd Street and Sixth Avenue.

Although authorities couldn't confirm whether Tom Cruise's ex and their precious 6-year-old were in the vehicle at the time of the accident, photos and video from the scene show that the duo were in the car, with Holmes peeking out from a back-seat window.

No injuries were reported, and the only person from Holmes' camp who was at the scene when police arrived was her driver.

As for the car itself, the damage appeared minimal, with some dents and scratches on the rear of the driver's side.

Holmes and Suri were reportedly on their way back from the little lady's gymnastics class in Chelsea Piers, which is about 15 blocks from where the accident happened.

Indeed, the two were photographed Monday night at the popular Chelsea sports complex, where Mom reportedly looked on as Suri flipped and tumbled with an instructor.

We sure bet neither of them is flipping over this fender-bender of a mishap.
