Nicole Kidman visited a hospital just after midnight Thursday morning after becoming involved in an automobile accident on the set of her new movie "The Invasion" in downtown Los Angeles.

A Jaguar carrying the actress, her co-star, Jackson Bond and several crewmembers hit a pole and a garbage can after the driver towing the vehicle took a turn too quickly, witnesses tell Access.

Authorities confirm a non-paramedic fire crew was called out to the set at 6th Street and Broadway around 12:25 a.m. for an on-set traffic accident. "All parties" were complaining of injuries, police say.

Kidman walked away from the scene and was taken back to her on-set trailer sources say. Shortly thereafter she was taken in an SUV to a hospital.

Ten-year-old Bond was also taken to a medical facility.

At least two stunt men believed to be playing zombies in the film, were on top of the car at the time of impact. It is not known if they were injured.

The car was being carried on a metal platform attached to a tow truck. It had been driving around downtown. Eyewitnesses said the pavement was wet due to shooting.

"The Invasion" is a take-off on an older horror film, Kidman told Access recently.

"It's based on the 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers,' in the original kind of concept but in terms of the way this director is interpreting it he is giving it a whole new angle," she said.
