The taping of an action scene went awry yesterday on the streets on New York City, when a car jumped a curb during the filming of a scene for Nicolas Cage's new movie, The Sorcerer's Apprentice.
The Ferrari, which was running on a street closed to the public, lost control and smashed into the entrance of a Times Square Sbarro's, injuring two people, police and witnesses said.
"A black Ferrari and a silver Mercedes were chasing each other," tourist Mark Watkins told the New York Post. "The Ferrari took a route down the center of the road, swerving between cars. The Mercedes took the outside lanes. The Ferrari took a sharp right to the left and lost it, swerving across the lanes, taking out a lamppost and a news stand. One lady was knocked to the ground and a lamppost landed directly on top of a chap.
Both victims were taken to Bellevue Hospital and it looks like they are going to be fine.
Jeez, just when you think taxis are the most dangerous vehicles on the city streets...
