New Westminster Mayor Wayne Wright did not suffer any injuries from an accident in which his car was totaled Wednesday morning.

Wright said he was returning to his Quayside home from getting a physical at the Royal City Centre when his car collided with a truck at Seventh Street and Third Avenue. After the accident he said he headed right back to the doctor's office to get the same tests he'd just been there to get a few minutes earlier done all over again to make sure he was all right.

"There were no broken bones, no cuts," said Wright on Friday before heading off to a Metro Vancouver meeting. "It's the car I lost, not me."
