Robert Pattinson Hit by Car, Unhurt; 'Tweens Exhale

by at . Comments

Upon fleeing a horde of teenage fans, Robert Pattinson was clipped by a taxi cab today in Manhattan, but was merely grazed and emerged unscathed.

The British Twilight hunk had a brush with death running away from a throng of fans front of the Strand bookstore on Broadway and 12th Street.

He had been inside filming scenes for his new movie, Remember Me.

Exiting the building, Robert Pattinson tried to duck a crowd of screaming teenage girls waiting for him on the rainy sidewalk and made a break for it, running across the wet street for his trailer. That's when a taxi grazed his hip, sources say.

Pattinson reportedly stood still for a moment, appearing stunned, as a bodyguard yelled at the girls: "You see what you did, you almost killed him!"

Yeah, way to show your appreciation, ladies.

Other witnesses downplayed the incident involving Robert Pattinson.

"The reports are exaggerated," said Vivian Mayer, a spokeswoman for the film's production company. "It was not caused by his fans. Production continues."

Pattinson has been mobbed all over the city, and also the subject of more rumors than we can even keep straight. Earlier today, he was reported to be dating Camilla Belle, a rumored love interest who he has been seen with in NYC.

Others say he is obsessed with Kristen Stewart, his Twilight co-star.
