robert pattinson hit by cab

Robert Pattinson is quickly learning the hazards of filming a movie in New York City - he was hit by a taxi cab on Thursday while running away from hysterical fans.

Radar is reporting a first-hand account of a taxi cab grazing Robert Pattinson on the streets of New York as he was being pursued by crazed fans.Some of the teen girls were hysterical and Robert rushed across the road. As he did so, a taxi grazed him. The cabbie slammed on his brakes as soon as he realized what had happened.

He was not hurt.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 and the fans: “You see what you did, you almost killed him!”

EOnline reports that Summit says:

“Robert Pattinson is fine. The reports are exaggerated, and the accident was not caused by fans. Production continues.”

The Summit rep refused to say what did cause the cabbie accident, or whether or not additional precautions were being taken for Pattinson.

The 23-year-old London-born actor had been inside most of the morning filming scenes for his new movie Remember Me.

Pattinson will be shooting around Manhattan for the next four weeks.

His co-star in the film is gorgeous Lost TV actress Emilie de Ravin, who he has been seen hanging out with in the evenings.
