Kidman Injured In Crash During Movie Shoot

Nicole Kidman was taken to a hospital after the Jaguar she was driving crashed early Thursday during downtown shooting of the science fiction thriller "The Invasion," police said.

Kidman, 39, was examined at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and then released two hours later, her publicist, Catherine Olim, said.

"I think she's OK," said Olim, adding that it was unclear if the actress went home or returned to the set to resume shooting of the Warner Bros. movie.

The Jaguar was being towed by a camera rig that skidded while taking a corner at about 45 mph, causing Kidman's car to hit a pole on West Sixth Street, Olim said.

The actress and a young boy in the car were wearing seat belts, Olim said. It was believed the young boy was a stunt person, she said.

"The stunt driver apparently went off course and hit a light post at about 1 a.m.," police Officer Karen Smith said.

In all, eight people, including Kidman, stuntmen and cameramen, were taken to hospitals for examination and were released, Smith said.

The Oscar-winning actress, who stars as a Washington psychiatrist who unearths the origin of an alien epidemic, was trying to escape zombielike characters on the hood of the Jaguar when the crash occurred, Olim said.

Paramedics were called to examine Kidman for injuries before she was taken to the hospital, police said.

Warner Bros. spokeswoman Jan Craft's office said a statement would be released later.

    The John Tyler Lions always seem to look sharp in their uniforms. But thanks to East Texas lawyer Keith Miller, the Lions will look better and play safer. Helmets that advertise lowering the impact of hits, and possibly reduce the amount of concussions, come with a hefty price-tag. Miller's donation of 7,500 dollars, will go to help the lions cover that cost. "Keith Miller's been a big sponsor of John Tyler High School football program for years now.  I know it's...More >>
