    The action got all too real when the Ferrari lost control and swerved on to the sidewalk hitting a bystander and knocking over a lamppost, which then fell on another person.

    Mark Watkins, who was vacationing in New York from Birmingham, England, saw the events unfold.

    "A black Ferrari and a silver Mercedes were chasing each other. The Ferrari took a route down the center of the road, swerving between cars. The Mercedes took the outside lanes." Watkins told the paper. "The Ferrari took a sharp right to the left and lost it, swerving across the lanes, taking out a lamppost and a news stand. One lady was knocked to the ground and a lamppost landed directly on top of a chap."

    According to the paper, one of the victims was not associated with the movie and it is not known if the other injured individual is also a bystander. Both were reportedly taken Bellevue Hospital with injures that are believed not to be life threatening.

    "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" is a live action movie inspired by Disney's "Fantasia." Cage plays the sorcerer on the hunt for a young apprentice. The film is schedule to be released in 2010.
