However, Queensland Police Service dismissed the rumours, with a spokesman saying, "We have no idea how the rumour started but my colleague had lots of calls overnight.We checked and thankfully there were no Kevin Bacons injured or deceased overnight". The police service, who regularly keep Queensland residents up-to-date with road crashes via Twitter, tweeted, "We can happily confirm that Kevin Bacon was Not killed in a car crash in Qld overnight", before quipping, "We did enjoy talking to every entertainment writer on the planet (or it seemed that way) though".
Despite the reports, Kevin Bacon is actually in Atlanta shooting the upcoming drama 'Jayne Mansfield's Car', with John Hurt and RAY STEVENSON.
