Cage Movie Car Crash Leaves Two Pedestrians In Hospital

Filming on NICOLAS CAGE's new movie THE SORCERER'S APPRENTICE was halted on Monday morning (04May09) when a high-speed car chase through New York's Times Square went awry - leaving two pedestrians injured.
The action scene saw a black Ferrari weave through traffic in the busy tourist spot, but onlookers were left stunned when the car slid on the wet road and smashed into the front of a restaurant, hitting one bystander and knocking down a lamppost - which fell and struck another person.
The incident occurred at around 1am local time and both victims were taken to the nearby Bellevue Hospital with injuries which are not thought to be life-threatening.
One eyewitness tells the New York Post, "A black Ferrari and a silver Mercedes were chasing each other.
"The Ferrari took a route down the centre 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."
