Cab clips fan-fleeing Pattinson

British actor Robert Pattinson was clipped by a taxi, but not seriously hurt, as he fled a mob of young female fans in New York Thursday.

RadarOnline said the incident took place in front of Manhattan's Strand Bookstore with the cab driver slamming on his brakes, but not before grazing the heartthrob's hip.

You see what you did, you almost killed him! the entertainment news Web site quoted a bodyguard as telling Pattinson's pursuers.

The 23-year-old Twilight star reportedly has been in town this week filming scenes for his new movie Remember Me.
