Two Injured After Nicolas Cage Stuntman Crashes Car

by | 05 May 2009

Pedestrians were injured after a car driven by Nicolas Cage's stuntman in New York City crashed into a Times Square restaurant.

Two onlookers suffered minor injuries when a stunt driver lost control of his vehicle while filming a chase scene for Cage's upcoming film The Sorcerer's Apprentice.

Based on the iconic sequence from Disney's Fantasia, the film sees Cage as a sorcerer who takes a young college student under his wing and is set for release in July 2010.

During the filming of a chase sequence in the tourist district of Times Square, Cage's stunt driver mounted the pavement after his Ferrari skidded wildly.

British tourist Matt Watkins, who witnessed the event, told the New York Post: "A black Ferrari and a silver Mercedes were chasing each other.

"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."

An amateur video of the incident can be seen on the New York daily newspaper's website.

Neither of the injured parties is thought to have suffered life-threatening wounds while the stunt driver himself was unhurt.
