Nicolas Cage's Sorcerer's Apprentice has an accident

The accident happened as two movie vehicles, a Ferrari and a Mercedes, careened down 7th Avenue in Manhattan. The driver of the Mercedes lost control and plowed through the entrance of a Sbarro pizza parlor. Although the street was closed for filming, plenty of fans were around to catch the action — and unfortunately, two of those bystanders were injured. “The Ferrarri took a sharp right to the left and lost it, swerving across the lanes, taking out a lamppost and a newsstand,” said British tourist Mark Watkins, who was stationed atop bleachers at the new TKTS booth.”One lady was knocked to the ground, and a lamppost landed directly on top of a chap.” Both victims were taken to a nearby hospital and treated for what are being reported as non-life-threatening injuries.No word if Cage was on set at the time of the crash. A rep for the New York City Film Commission confirmed the accident, but had no further information. Cage is currently filming The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, a live action version of a segment of the Disney classic Fantasia. Cage reunites with National Treasure director Jon Turteltaub to tell the story of a wizard, played by Cage, who leaves his workshop in the hands of a young intern.
