Video: NYC car-chase stunt gets ugly

updated 5/6/2009 3:19:56 PM ET 2009-05-06T19:19:56

Nine crew members working on a Nicolas Cage film in New York’s Times Square have been treated for minor injuries after another car crash near the movie set.

It’s the second accident this week involving the film “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.” The most recent happened about 3:28 a.m. Wednesday.

The SUV’s driver says she tried to avoid hitting a taxi and instead struck a parked car. Police say both vehicles jumped the curb where crew members were sitting under a marquee. All but two have been released from hospitals.

Early Monday, a stunt driver apparently lost control of a Ferrari during filming of a chase scene. Two bystanders were injured when the car plowed into a restaurant just blocks away from Wednesday’s accident scene.
