Robert Pattinson Hit By Cab! OMG!! [UPDATED]
Radar Online reports that Rob was hit by a taxi cab in New York!!
RadarOnline.com witnessed the Twilight star get clipped by a cab around noon in front of the Strand Bookstore on Broadway and 12th Street.
He was not hurt.
The 23-year-old London-born actor had been inside most of the morning filming scenes for his new movie Remember Me. A team of five security guards were trying to fend off a crowd of teenaged girls when Rob was leaving the bookstore. It was pouring rain as they tried to hustle him quickly across the busy street to the safety of his trailer.
Some of the teen girls were hysterical and Rob rushed across the road. As he did so, a taxi grazed him. The cabbie slammed on his brakes as soon as he realized what had happened.
It appeared as if the cab hit Rob in the hip. He stood there for a moment looking stunned. The bodyguard next to him checked if he was okay and then screamed at the fans: "You see what you did, you almost killed him!"

UPDATE: E! Online (Ted Casablanca) reports that Summit says:
"Robert Pattinson is fine. The reports are exaggerated, and the accident was not caused by fans. Production continues." The Summit rep refused to say what did cause the cabbie accident, or whether or not additional precautions were being taken for Pattinson.
But first, a disclaimer: Sources where Rob was filming, as well as bystanders, tell us they did not see the accident. Remember, Radar also "broke" that Kristen Stewart's boyfriend was chasing her around Italy (uh, didn't happen).
