Two run down during filming of Nic Cage movie

sorcers_apprenticeTwo people were injured when a car chase scene, being filmed for Nicolas Cage ‘s new Disney movie The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, went out of control at approximately 1 a.m. this morning in New York City. One car went out of control and wound up on the sidewalk, injuring two people. Mark Watkins, in New York visiting from Birmingham, England, saw the accident happen. “A black Ferrari and a silver Mercedes were chasing each other,” he 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 turn 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.” According to reports, one of the victims was associated with the movie, but it’s believed the other was a bystander. Both victims were taken to Bellevue Hospital with injuries that are not believed to be life threatening. ~movi_alex
