A few days ago while filming a chase scene involving a Ferrari and a Mercedes for Nic Cage’s new film The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, the driver of the Ferrari lost control, hopped a curb and crashed into a Sbarro’s injuring two people.
Yesterday, nine more people including crew members suffered minor injuries from another car accident near the Times Square set. This time a SUV unrelated to the film hit a parked car near the movie set.
The SUV’s driver told reporters she tried to avoid hitting a taxi cab and instead struck a parked car. Both vehicles jumped the curb where some crew members were sitting under a marquee. It’s unclear how many crew members were among the injured.
This is what happens when people try to make a movie based on the poem that inspired Fantasia and throw in Ferrari car chases. The guy who wrote it had to do more than just roll over in his grave. He had to haunt the set.
Another angle of the original crash.
