Oh my goodness!
Actress Nicole Kidman was rushed to the hospital Wednesday night after being involved in a car accident on the set of her latest film, The Invasion, in downtown Los Angeles.
At the time of the incident, the actress was filming a scene in which she’s driving a Jaguar, trying to escape zombie-like characters hanging off the hood.
The vehicle was being towed by a rig in order to give the appearance that the actress was really driving.
At around midnight, the stunt driver operating the rig skidded while taking a corner at roughly 45 mph, causing Kidman’s car to hit a poll and knock over a garbage can.
Both the actress and her costar, 10-year-old Jackson Bond, who was riding in the front passenger seat, were wearing seat belts.
Members of the crew immediately wrapped a blanket around Kidman and paramedics arrived to check the actress for injuries.
Kidman, 39, was taken to Cedars Sinai Medical Center in an SUV, and was released within two hours.
Sources tell Us that the actress was in shock and took a long break, but eventually resumed filming later that night.
Her husband Keith Urban, 39, and 11-year-old son, Connor Cruise, were said to be on-set at the time of the accident.
Sounds like she’s okay, but 45 mph into a telephone pole is nothing to sneeze at!
