A driver for the upcoming Nicolas Cage flick "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" crashed a Ferrari F430 while filming a chase scene in New York's Times Square. Two were injured. Sadly, Cage's career will survive. Video below.
The incident was captured on amateur video and shows two cars weaving through NYC traffic before the stunt driver of the Ferrari lost control on the wet streets and jumped the curb, crashing into a Sbarro's. The car struck a pedestrian directly and knocked down an electrical post which fell onto another. The worst part? One of the victims was not associated with the film so that'll be a nice lawsuit. Both were taken to Bellevue Hospital where their injuries are considered not life threatening. Thank goodness, especially as we laughed at the guy flailing his arms and legs underneath the electrical pole. We feel much less like horrible human beings now.
