Robert Pattinson recently revealed there would be a fourth Twilight film
Twilight star Robert Pattinson was hit by a taxi in New York as he tried to run away from a crowd of teenage fans, according to reports.
US website Radaronline said the 23-year-old was clipped by a cab but was not seriously hurt.
The British actor, who had been filming his new movie Remember Me, was surrounded by fans as he tried to cross the street to his trailer.
Pattinson's manager did not comment on the accident.
The actor's security guards were reportedly furious about the scuffle and one was heard shouting: "You see what you did, you almost killed him."
Since appearing as vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight film series, Pattinson has become a huge star.
Earlier this month, he took home the prize for best male breakthrough performance at the MTV Movie Awards in Los Angeles.
He also shared the best kiss prize with co-star Kristen Stewart.
In May, he confirmed there will be a fourth film in the vampire series.
