Actor James Caviezel was rushed to hospital on Thursday after he was involved in a freak motorcycle accident.
The Passion of the Christ star was thrown from his Harley Davidson motorbike when an unidentified man threw a bicycle into his path as he rode through a northern area of Washington State.
The 40 year old was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for cuts and bruises.
A police spokesperson said the star was wearing a helmet and that the accident "could have been a lot worse".
No further details were available.
