Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry avoided serious injury after being involved in a multi-car collision Friday on Highway 24 near Oakland, California.

According to ABC 7 News"everyone" involved seemed to be OK.

A California Highway Patrol spokesperson told ABC 7 News that Curry's Porsche suffered damage after being struck twice during the crash, which was said to have likely been influenced by the weather.

The California Highway Patrol posted on their Facebook page that a silver Lexus lost control and crossed into Curry's lane and hit the three-time NBA champion's car. Curry's vehicle was hit a second time when a black Honda Civic lost control and veered into the median where Curry had parked while waiting for assistance

Curry posted on Twitter after the collisions:

Don’t need any reminders but All the Time God is Great and God is Great all the time! Appreciate all the texts.

The two-time NBA Most Valuable Player was also involved in a car crash near Charlotte, North Carolina, in October 2011 but wasn't injured in that crash either.

Curry is currently sidelined by a groin injury with no definitive timetable for his return. Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told reporters in mid-November that the team would be "very cautious" with his recovery process.

The 30-year-old Davidson product has averaged 29.5 points, 6.1 assists and 5.0 rebounds while shooting 51.5 percent from the floor, including 49.2 percent from three-point range, in 12 games this season.

Golden State has posted a 2-5 record while he's been out with the injury.

The Warriors return to action Friday night for a clash with the Portland Trail Blazers.
