Robert Pattinson Hit by Taxi: Twilight Star 'Almost Killed'
Twilight star Robert Pattinson was hit by a cab in New York yesterday, June 17th, while being chased by a gaggle of hysterical fans.
A team of bodyguards fought to control a horde of screaming teenage girls as Robert Pattinson tried to leave Strand Bookstore on Broadway and 12th Street. As Pattinson sprinted across the street in the rain a cab clipped him, slamming on its breaks.
The "hit by a cab" incident freaked out his watching fans and prompted inaccurate reports that Robert Pattinson had been "almost killed" by a wayward taxi.
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."
Robert Pattinson is currently shooting the film Remember Me and will be in Manhattan, New York, for the next four weeks.
