Robert Pattinson Hit by a Taxi
Robert Pattinson was hit by a taxi cab while escaping his hysterical fans. This happened last June 18, Thursday in Manhattan, New York City while filming his next movie “Remember Me”.
Robert was making his way out of the Strand Bookstore on Broadway and 12th Street after filming a scene inside the building when a group of fans began to hound him. Five security guards tried in vain to protect him from a pack of teenage girls when Robert left the bookstore where he had been shooting and headed out into the street, but the attempt was failed.
It was raining at that time and Robert tried to escape the frenzy by running across the busy street. Suddenly, a moving taxi "grazed" him. The taxi's driver was quick to slam on the brakes. "It appeared as if the cab hit Rob in the hip. He stood there for a moment looking stunned. The bodyguard next to him checked if he was okay and then screamed at the fans: 'You see what you did, you almost killed him!' " Radar Online writes.
So far, there hasn't been record on Robert's condition. He is expected to be staying in Manhattan for the next four weeks to complete shooting "Remember Me", which is slated for February 12, 2010 U.S. release.
