Actor James Caviezel hurt in motorcycle accident
The Associated Press

LEAVENWORTH, Wash. -- The Washington State Patrol says actor James Caviezel suffered cuts and bruises when a man hurled a bicycle into the path of his Harley Davidson motorcycle.

Trooper Rich Magnussen says "The Passion of the Christ" actor was taken Thursday to Cascade Medical Center in Leavenworth.

Magnussen says the 40-year-old Caviezel, of Woodland Hills, Calif., was wearing a helmet, and that "it could have been a lot worse." The trooper says he doesn't know why the actor was in the area about 14 miles southeast of this city in north-central Washington.

Caviezel portrayed Jesus in Mel Gibson's movie. He was born in Mount Vernon, Wash.

Magnussen says mental issues may be involved in why the 42-year-old Wenatchee man tossed the bike.

Yeah, I heard about this one. What a said case. I thought that it took place in LA though? I remember the Los Angeles motorcycle accident attorneys name that was suing Cascade Medical. Is that right?
