Oscar-winning Australian actress Nicole Kidman was taken to hospital after a car she was travelling in crashed during the shooting of a science-fiction film in Los Angeles, police said on January 25.
The 39-year-old Australian screen goddess â€” the highest-paid actress in Hollywood â€” was treated at the Cedars Sinai Hospital after a stunt vehicle crashed into a lamppost, police said.
â€œAt about 0900 GMT this morning, a stunt vehicle travelling at 300 West 6th Street went off the road and collided with a light pole,â€ Los Angeles Police Department spokeswoman Martha Garcia told AFP. â€œThere were reports of minor complaints, but the people involved made their own arrangements to go to hospital and have since been released. Any injuries were minor.â€
Garcia confirmed Kidman was in the car that crashed.
Kidman was in a car being towed by a camera truck which skidded as it went round a corner, reports said. Video footage of the incident on local television showed an apparently calm Kidman walking away from the scene of the accident.
